It's by design, to help prevent software piracy, as an external drive
can be easily moved from on computer to another. (Of course, if those
computers aren't identical, Vista would have to be reinstalled each time
the drive is moved to a new computer, so there'd be no point in adding
the capability.) All Microsoft OS's have this "limitation."
