I've been trying to get vista SP1 activated on my computer for the last week. I've tried VistaLoader vers. 2.2, 2.1.3, 188.8.131.52. I've tried Vista Extreme, and a couple of other activated copies and none of them activate. I've tried a using voatktools 2.2 to remove the activation cracks and change the different editions to retail and OEM versions to try to get the different activators to work. I've also tried an activator that is supposed to be a developers activation, but that didn't work either. The different tool all show a meesage that activation will be completed on reboot, but none has worked. Every time I have installed a different copy of vista, I've formatted my drive while installing. My BIOS is Pheonix (10-13-05) ver. A02 I would really appreciate advice on what to try next.
