Re: [WIN8] Used up my activation allotment on one PC I don't know how things work in 8 for sure, but I know that in Win 7, I used up my activations and also changed HD's a few times. All I did was call the activate by phone number and never had any problems. If they don't have that option anymore in the activation window, then I'd do as Cudni recommended, and just call MS and try to talk to someone. They will fix things up quickly... They have always been very good when I talked to them.
