How Do I Replace Notgenuine Vista With Purchased Genuine-key Install-dvd?

IT Professional July 17, 2009 7:40 AM Leo is completely incorrect. However my machine never gets to the installation... The odds of your machine having that particular BIOS, from that particular author, are rather minute. but if the key is not on the cd, then when you enter the key during set up how does the system know if its correct or not !?!? this contact form

For example. LikeLike Comment by techpaul | June 28, 2011 | Reply Paul, I finally got it to take the VISTA recovery disk. What could be the problem? ... I went back to setup ,and there was something else I had to enable,i forgot the exact name but it has bootup priority in it,so just look for it.

Not all XP Install CDs are the same - they vary depending on version (Pro, Home, etc.), age (with or without SP1, SP2, etc.), language (English, others) and OEM or not But if you get two disks of the same OEM's disk of a specific build of a specific variation of Windows XP, all those CDs will be the same. Transfer your HD to a new machine? I just wanted to clear up some confusion some of your readers may have about the UNATTEND.TXT file.

  1. whern I start it it doesnt get as far as the BIOS Screen so hitting a key does not help.
  2. That is now fixed.
  3. See, from what you describe, it sounds like the drive will read/boot CD's (I am assuming the XP Install disc is a CD) but not DVD's..
  4. If you are using a USB connected cd drive..
  5. If it is not there, you will not be able to boot from a disc.

Final step) Now we need to exit the BIOS Setup Utility and Save our change. And I don't know what other programs you're running. A borrowed and genuine Microsoft Vista DVD would work and would require you to enter the key that came with it. So i installed cracked version.

Not sure of an answer but hopefully will look for the USB PORT for thumb drive. I banish thee! It encountered some kind of error and refused to proceed. After which, I was to call them back and they would do their validation thing.

Built in 2010. I have booted XP onto the laptop, so assume the drive works and I can boot from teh Vista disk on my other machine, so presume the disk isn't corrupted. My sanity might be questionable, but with respect to unattend.txt - most of the time the key you find there does not work. LikeLike Comment by techpaul | December 28, 2009 | Reply HELP please.

The product key IS ON THE CD. You just need to adapt the particulars to your BIOS. The other one does not show that line as part of the boot from cd process. Saga LoutMar 17, 2013, 9:16 AM Just posting the word "cracked" should be enough to get you banned from Tom's but as you are new here and probably forgot to read

even I (who does this practically everyday) would have to look it up. Is that something i can fix from the system bios? I have many reactions to everything you related (and could spend an hour talking about them, I suspect) but the main things that would concern you are: 1) I tip my Any thoughts?!

Usually, at startup, you will (briefly) see a B&W screen -which tells you which keys to hit for pre-OS load Options -- right BEFORE Windows starts to load itself. If you can't do that, try looking for a Windows 7 loader. solved I bought recovery disk to reinstall windows 8 on my new hard drive, will I be able to find the product key in the installation solved Windows 8.1 reinstall & navigate here You may think you're purchasing a CD, but in fact, it's more like you're purchasing that product key.

The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down.

One more thing: if you registered Vista already, and then you drastically change the hardware config, Microsoft will "see" it as a new machine..

Needless to say it's I who believe you are wrong.

Product key issues why isnt my product key working. I don't know what you were doing that required so many reboots (gaining access to a User Account wouldn't require any besides the one) except possibly re-Installing Vista? shadow2450Jan 12, 2013, 9:27 AM ex_bubblehead said: If there's no 'Windows activation' section when viewing system properties it means that that copy has been hacked with one of the available activation December 18, 2007 9:08 PM Yes, you can get the product key from a windows xp home cd.

Don't blame the hardware company. I have purchased a... One of the reasons that the product keys are unique is to prevent piracy. his comment is here They don't tell you that !

I have spent months creating perfect settings, environs, etc, and simply need to replace the basic OS's info with this new productID and Key. Look for "Entering Setup", or "Entering BIOS".

To recover a lost password, Microsoft recommends using a Password Reset disk which you make ahead of time, ( which I take it you did not make. I couldn't find WINNT.sif Which is exactly why I've been saying that the product key is not on the disc. Nor do I know what you mean (exactly) by "a new one" -- Windows 7? I would put Linux on it.
