  1. I tried to install Linux on my system for a dual-boot with XP but I accidently wiped out my whole Windows OS. I reinstalled Windows but I can't activate it with my Product Key. What should I do?

    To contact a Microsoft customer service representative and activate Windows by phone:

    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then
    click Activate Windows.

    -or- Click the Windows Activation icon in the status area of the taskbar.

    2. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to active Windows now.

    3. Click Read the Windows Product Activation Privacy Statement, click Back, and then click Next.

    4. Follow the steps that are displayed in the Activate Windows by phone dialog box, and then
    click next. Please note: the number will be displayed at this point and will differ based on the
