    limit in the number of activations of windows 8 pro upgrade

    hi ! i had little question about windows 8 pro upgrade..

    How many times can i activate using the key (same computer, reinstalls)?

    i bought the win 8 upgrade, but i'm having trouble with an old hardware and it's drivers often freeze windows 8, sometimes corrupting data. So having to do some trouble shooting i have had to reinstall and activate again. I'll try to make an image for the future tough.

    so, now i worry if there is a limit. What happens or what can i do after reaching that limit?

    you call them and you tell to the nice computer that it's install only on 1 PC, and the nice computer will give you the code.

    Generally spreading from the pc you can activate nearly at will. If you do run into a problem, it's just a quick call to ms.

Office 2010 activations
Hi all as far as I know if you install Windows 8 on the SAME computer you originally had W7 on (or even XP) where you activated Office 2010 - activation should cause NO problems --and won't count in the number of activations if you go back to W7 (or even XP). Actually the strange thing is I...
