Vista Home Basic
I purchased Vista Home Premium. How might I try out
Vista Home Basic without having to buy it??

Thanks,

===================================
Go to a retail store and inspect their cheapest
display models...I suspect you can find one with
Home Basic on it.

Re: Vista Home Basic
Hi,

Install the version you bought and disable them.

Alternately, boot with the DVD to a clean system and install without
entering a Product Key. You will be able to choose any edition you please.
To keep it, you must add a valid Product Key for the version originally
selected and activate within 30 days, the keys are not interchangeable.
