I have a Bachelor of Science in Applied Geoinformatics, with my main areas of study being Geography and Environmental Studies, GIS, Computer Science and Information Systems. I have always had a passion for computers and geography, so studying and working in the GIS field has given me the best of both worlds.

My questions/answers will be written in South African (UK) English - please do not "correct" my spelling.

I'm from South Africa, is this why the telephone activation option is not showing in my activation options?

comment reinstalling vista product key
I've only done it about 4 times before, and according to the help files, I can activate as many times as needed as long as it's on the same hardware.

comment Installing Windows 8 pro on a built PC
@Karan So I could buy Windows 8 Pro, install it on my XP PC and upgrade using the XP key. Then I could install it on my sister's Windows 7 notebook, and upgrade it using her 7 key. Then I could install it on my newly built PC, and use the Window 8 key which came with it? Or would I have to first purchase the upgrade using the XP and 7 keys online, and then just install it afterwards (without having to download it again)?

Thanks for the link, but not really what I had in mind, as we all work in the same office and access the same server.
