If it's an OEM version or one from a MAPS subscription, the licence is
non transferrable so if you've activated it on one PC, you can't on
another.

Re: Second Vista Activation
You can call Microsoft and explain that and they can activate it over the
phone. Granted, it must be the retail version and not the OEM.
