just bought a vista loaded laptop
it has vista premium on it, but...
if i can get ahold of the cd key or something can i use it for my XP computer?
i dunno, i just faintly remember hearing that you could use it 3 times on 3 different computers...or was that for office or something
yeah, just wondering, legit question )
My dell laptop has a Windows Sticker on the bottom with the key on it. Is yours there?
yea its there, so.......yes? o
I highly doubt it would work. Microsoft are asses like that...
i just remember my friend being able to give out his XP cd key to a couple of our friends and it all worked out just fine, just wondering if this is the same case
lol I misread your post.
You can only use vista on 1 computer per cd, unless you buy multiple licenses.
interesting...you actually installed it on both? tahts odd.. lol
so what made yours work?

Go somewhere else to learn about stealing, fraud and violation of software UA's please.
(and I'm not kidding - don't ask anymore questions like that at FiPG).
i wasn't, i was asking
i honestly don't know the regulations for the vista's product keys
but now that BD has edited his posts
i know now
Microsoft allows you to get three licenses for the Same computer. This is only for those people who upgrade parts of the computer that demand a new OS install. They aren't letting you use it on three seperate computers, just three forms of your original computer. Hope that clears it up.

How dare they expect you to use a single license for software on only one machine. Sonsofbitches.. roll
Yeah I'm not a huge Microsoft fan but they have every right to make sure each computer has a legit license. If you want free, move to Linux...
