Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
The problem is Vista see's your second format as a second partition on the hard drive. It never gave you a clean format, and just internally added another partition. I solved the problem by formatting with a copy of XP and just stopping the process after the format was completed. Partition Magic works just as good to give you a clean format. Because you should format first with your older copy of windows, if you have more than one partition is the reason for the error. Vista see's your first copy as the older copy and just gives you a second partition.
Being actually in the second partition is why you get the error when you try to activate the actually second copy too. It actually trying to activate your copy but, the copy of the activated copy (your first copy), is still activated and is still on your hard drive and working.
The two NTSC formats for Xp and Vista are not the same, and is really why this error happens.
