    Why do you not use OEM:SLP method to pre activate like normal.

    Suposse I didnt want to do that. Also OEM:SLP I thought only worked in xp. When i first tried to install I formatted the Whole computer and erased all partitions then made a single one. Then windows complained that it was a mbr parition. So i deleted the partition and let windows do whatever it wanted to? did it create gtp partition or something?
