Hi, Reinstalled Win7 pro, 64 bit. Recovered SN from system before reinstalling on a new HDD. MS now tell me the SN on the new drive is invalid. Any ideas? I still have original Win7 on the HDD I removed.

If you did it online then try the automated phone service, I have had it rejected online but accepted by phone a few times. When you have to chose a location try Ireland assuming you are in UK.

Fruit bat: brilliant, many thanks for this, it does not show up as an option on MS site, so useful.

Why not just phone the freephone activation number shown on the activation screen. It is fully automated and takes about 5 mins.
