Re: Install Windows Vista OS with an Upgrade?
Read the EULA carefully. I think you have only one license. It allows you
to run two ways:
1) XP on one computer. If it is an OEM license, it can never be transferred
to any other computer.
2) Vista on one computer, probably with a different product ID, but being an
upgrade license, it 'uses up' the license of the OS it was upgraded from.
If OEM, can never be transferred to any other computer.
You can only run one of the two choices, not both at the same time.
You may be able to switch back and forth between XP and Vista, but I think
the rules for that are kind of murkey.
