    I have a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate which I downloaded. I cracked it by replacing some files, I forgot how exactly but it wasn't the timerstop crack, and when I go to run and type "slmgr.vbs -dlv", it always says 180 days remaining. Under My Computer it shows up as Vista being activated.

    Today, I accidentally tried to download something from Microsoft. I forgot about my copy of Windows being cracked and did the validation thing. Then it told me that my copy wasn't genuine. I restarted, and in the bottom right corner of the desktop it says:

    Windows Vista (TM)
    Build 6000
    This copy of Windows is not genuine.

    In addition, a dialog box appeared saying Aero and other Vista feature were deactivated.

    So what I was wondering is, is there any way to crack this? Thanks in advance.

    you have two options
    1. request a modded bios for your motherboard

    Question



    Why didn't you use the TimerStop method?

    I don't know what motherboard I have, and I have a laptop so I don't think I can open it up and check.

    I tried it once, but it didn't work because I forgot to change the time in the BIOS before applying the crack. So I had to reinstall Vista and try it again, but it didn't work again for some reason.

    Do you think I should just install XP again? All this WGA bs is giving me too much trouble.

    if you value your 300GB of stuff, you should buy a hard disk and dump all of the 300GB of stuff into it since according to you

    if when you run slmgr.vbs -dlv on the last line you get time remaining 43200 (30 days) it is perfectly fine to run windows update
