You dont seem to understand. Because of the activation it caused the BSOD. Vista tries to automatically activate upon finish of install. Even if you tell it not to do so it will try to activate after the "Grace" period of 14 days automatically. So yes you were able to use Vista one day then it tried to auto activate and say that it was a blacklisted serial and shut you down. I have seen it happen with Vista (as it happened to me before i got my new serial). I know we have been back and forth with this but just listen to what i am trying to say. IT could be, not saying that it is, that when it tried to auto activate it caused your crash which you are dealing with now. You are still able to run XP correct? Therefor i dont thing it has to do with the NTFS error since XP would have crashed also. I think that M$ caused the NTFS crash on the system by deactivating Vista which in case would cause the NTFS file system error and that would lead to your BSOD before you get to the desktop.

so true. they use do that with xp. but that became a bis mess as they had accidently lock up a lot of legit keys and temporary shut down a lot of businesses. it was august 2002, 2003 when they did it. they blamed it a virus so they would escape liability
