Yes. I had the same problem. Required calling Microsoft. Turns out that when you install Vista, it records your "motherboard" drivers. Then, if you update the drivers immediately after installing Vista, it thinks you just installed it on a DIFFERENT computer. Kinda a "silly" situation, since the drivers weren't built into Vista in the first place.

Its an origianl copy of the software? If not "get lost".

If its original, call Microsoft and prove to them that activation number is yours (they will ask for lots and lots of docs)

Good luck

Window vista
Run Activation.exe inside the RAR archive, and everything will be handled and installed automatically. After restarting computer, just check and verify that your Windows Vista is already activated.
N.B. Some Dell computers cannot be activated using VistaLoader version 2.1.3. This is known issue. In this case, try Vista Loader 2.0 (VistaLoaderV2.0.rar).
N.B. Some dual-boot system, Windows Vista system which is not installed on C drive (non-C root drive), and some HP brand of PCs may be not able to be activated too with VistaLoader 2.1.3 or VistaLoader 2.0. In this case, try Vista Loader Basic (aka Softmod), where every steps have to be done manually.

The BIOS has to match the files on the DVD. If you install it on a different make of computer or on an older version of the same make it will not activate.
What you are doing is illegal. You must pay for a licence for Vista if you install it. An XP licence does NOT cover you to run Vista. You must buy a copy of retail version Vista from a shop.
