    We cant check the link for the Pic where i show the error log, about not being genuine, until i replaced the tokens.dat original from SP1 it worked again... i tried to force aero no joy.:eek:

    i did the exact same thing (restore tokens.dat) from untouched SP1 installation and had the same result. no aero. so i used system restore and restored me system at the moment before the sp1 installation. it's ok now but windows are not activated. i have to find a different trick.

    What about this:
    General reactivation method:

    1) Open Internet Browser
    2) Type %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Ro aming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing (there is no free space at 'Roaming', it's a bug, cannot edit lol!)
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Reboot Twice

    If you are not in RFM mode you may run cmd as admin directly.
