I am running W7 Pro 32 bit......fresh installed it with activation but found that the install wasn't to my perfection. 2 hours later formatted the drive & re installed W7. On activation got an error, with several options.......had to call the 1-888 # for support & they gave me 8 i.e A-G 6 digits for each to activate, got activated.

This is my 1st experience like this, earlier re installed had no issues with activation. Is the reason that the re install was quick & MS wanted to be sure of no piracy, counterfeit?

Is this activation as good as online activation?

Tried this http://www.howtogeek.com/75496/how-t...to-reactivate/ but it doesn't work........?

Hoping to hear from you like always before.....
