Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I asked, because many do not know that you cannot install a lesser
version, nor a version of the same build, or a better build, unless you
boot from CDROM.
The Restore disk isn't going to restore, unless the original hardware
components are inside, right? Windows sets 'codecs' for all of the major
hardware components. If you change two or more, Windows wants you
to activate again.
Windows 98 didn't care, because this was a fresh
install, and you provided the product key.
The full installation disk of Windows does care, because this is a fresh install, and the product key doesn't match the codecs, set for the
hardware inside. So just type the product key in, and away you go.
Or have I missed where you entered the key, and it still doesn't work?
I await your comment.
