    Hi mate. I m on Lenovo. I installed OEM ultimate from the IND direct download. During installation I enter no key, but when i booted up successfully I used the Hara activation something, i don't remember. Then i'm activated, but usually pause for not available for few seconds before showing the Activated. It's activated wi Key 0044 something.
    Thus i want to ask if i'm REAL activated?
    Should I try to re activate using the leaked Lenovo key?
    Thanks for yr advice before hand

    At a command prompt, type:

    slmgr.vbs -xpr

    If it says the machine is permanently activated, you're good to go.

    Type cmd/command prompt in Start menu/all programs/accessories
    Right-click on the first result (cmd.exe/command prompt) and click on Run as administrator (confirm by clicking Yes if required).
    Type in one at a time in to command prompt

    Code:slmgr -dli
    Code:slmgr -xpr
    Code:slmgr -dlv

    the first part of the key is correct

    My copy does the same thing, it takes a second to show activated. As far as those commands jackdor listed, those are to be typed in an administrator (elevated) command console session. Basically, click the Start button, then type "cmd" in the Run/Search bar, then when "cmd.exe." is shown above as a result, right click on it and select "Run a Administrator". After you can type the various "slmgr" commands at the cmd prompt...
