My System Specs


When you say OEM, do you mean the version you buy from NCIX or do you mean a true OEM like from Dell or Acer? Because my OEM Vista Premium 64bit version from NCIX has worked just fine on the phone activation, as recently as March 3rd.

I have Vista Home 64 OEM from a retailer. Stupid automated thing never works. Could be because Ive activated it at least 30 times though heh. You can do internet activation 1 time but after that its the annoying calls.
