Activation Vista Ultimate
Hi,,

I have a question about the activation of Vista. I have already installed a
legal product (Vista Ultimate) on my pc. This pc is a bit old, so i thought,
i'll buy a new system. My question is, can i install Vista with the same
license as my old computer on the new one? (would it be activated?) I've got
a retail version.

Wouter.

Once you remove the first installation form the old PC you can then activate
probably via telephone on the new PC - just explain to the activation center
on the phone that you have moved this installation and that it is no longer
installed on the previous machine.

Re: Activation Vista Ultimate
Yes, as long as you remove it from the old PC first, you may have to
reactivate by phone worst case.
