how disable automatic activation?
This is my 4th Vista install on this box in a week and a half. This time I
failed to uncheck the "activate automatically" box after I entered the key.
Checking System, it says I have 3 days before automatic activation. How do
I kill that? - if this one flies, it won't be ready for at least 5 days.

registry mod for this situation:
read it CAREFULLY - the item you're changing is "Manual" and the Data value
is changed from 0 to 1 .
You are responsible if you touch your registry - don't unless you know what
you are doing and have backup images.
Now says 30 days.
Well I don't know that, that should have done the trick
Re: how disable automatic activation?
I found a solution that solved this problem in Server 2008. It is a combination of a couple of postings:
Found a solution:
Disable the Auto-activation feature
To disable the Auto-activation feature, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit.exe in thePrograms list.
Note: If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
3. Change the DWORD value Manual to 1.
0 = Allow Auto-activation (Default)
1 = Disable Auto-activation
4. Change the DWORD value NotificationDisabled to 1.
5. Exit Registry Editor
6. Open Command Prompt and enter slmgr -rearm
7. Restart the computer.
