Slmgr.vbs -upk = Bad News
I am running Vista Ultimate without a product key. I recieved the 30-day trial upon installation and was messing around, trying to extend that trial. I now know about the beautiful -rearm command but its too late. I was exploring the functions of slmgr.vbs and ran the -upk (uninstall product key) command. I had no idea what it would do. I was just exploring this new system. I am sure that any of you out there who love computer like I do can relate.

Now here is the issue.

After unistalling the product key, I am put into reduced functionality mode (RFM). RFM has a one-hour time-limit. After logging into the computer, I am automatically logged out after an hour. It is the worst thing in the world. That hour does not even give me enough time to re-install vista (which would provide me with a temporary product key...i could -rearm...bam we're in business). Vista has me by the throat basically. I feel my only choice is to enter a valid product key. If anyone knows where I could find 30-trial keys or has any ideas that might get me out of this damned RFM, please impart your wisdom.

And by the way the only way i have found that could sneak my computer out of RFM is to boot in safe mode, but that doesnt do anything for me because i cannot install vista during safe mode. And i'm not about to use my computer in safe mode for the rest of my life.
