Might be a silly Vista Upgrade Question
In order to use an upgrade version of Vista I have read that you must have
the old OS installed and activated correct?

And once you upgrade to Vista your old XP Key is no longer usable?

So will you be able to install and activate your Win Xp to reinstall Vista
if you have a system crash? Or are you S.O.L. because your XP key is no
longer valid?

Just a thought.

If you upgrade to Vista, yes. But if you want to do a clean install
using your upgrade disk, see
