Understanding the significance of OPK regarding Vista OEM installation
I am trying to understand whether I need the OPK to install Vista using an OEM disc.

Surfing the net I came across the following video, which I think is helpful:
YouTube - The ABCs of the Windows Vista and 2007 Microsoft Office OPKs

The OPK appears to be aimed at mass producers of PC's who can save a considerable amount of time installing Vista.

So, I assume that the OPK is not really needed for home installations?
