This guide is relatively VENDOR NEUTRAL. It should work on all Vista installations that were preinstalled at the factory, for both laptops and desktops. NOTE: This procedure may look long, but I'm just really wordy at writing these things. You should get through each step pretty quickly.
Windows Vista, a major release of the Microsoft Windows operating system, was available in six different product editions: Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate. On September 5, 2006, Microsoft announced the USD pricing for editions available through retail channels. Editions sold. Adobe after effects 7.0 serial number generator.

Here's the deal, you're a computer guy, and you got a new laptop, but you hate that it came with all that crapware preloaded. If you only had a way to install Vista clean, you'd love to do it. But that brings up another issue: Vista activation. Why should you need to activate Vista again when you already have it activated? The point of this guide is to be able to install a clean version of Vista, without calling Microsoft (or going online) to activate.
BEFORE YOU POST ANY COMMENTS: This guide is ONLY about reinstalling Vista on a system that you purchased, WITH A VISTA LICENSE. If you have questions about installing on another computer where you have no license, GO AWAY. That is PIRACY and will not be tolerated here. Some notes: • You can only install the SAME VERSION of Vista you already bought.
If you're laptop came with Home Premium, you can NOT install Ultimate. • This guide uses information that's ALREADY ON YOUR LAPTOP. The only thing you will need to download is a small utility to backup and restore the activation.
• I have developed this on an HP laptop (dv9000t and dv9500t), but I don't see why it won't work on other systems. (Let me know if it does!) • This has been adapted and expanded from the original notes given for Lenovo systems by Wh1t3w0lf (see ) • I am not a lawyer, but this is not a crack or break in any way.
I fully believe that this is completely legal. All you are doing is backing up information already on the computer, and restoring it after you install. A Note for Beginners. This is not an especially difficult task, but it is a bit more technical than you may be used to or comfortable with. If you follow the guide, you should be OK.
HOWEVER, this guide does not cover installing drivers and possibly other things that you will need after Vista has been installed. Also, you may need to deal with situations that are not covered in this guide. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, then you should not do it. BUT, if you get stuck or something doesn't work right, you can always use the recovery discs to restore your system to the way it was when you opened the box. Things you need: • Skills and knowledge enough that you are comfortable installing an OS from scratch, and maybe partitioning a disk. • USB Flash Drive (or other external disk) Must be writable media! You cannot use a DVD or CD • Vista Installation Media • 2 DVD+Rs to make your recovery discs • Activation Backup & Recovery tool, downloadable below Disc Definitions There is no such thing as a 'Home Premium Vista' disc, or an 'Ultimate Vista' disc!!!! ALL VISTA DISCS CONTAIN ALL VERSIONS OF VISTA.
