    I have a Vista desktop after I login I must activate, it tries to activate online then asks for a serial
    I used Safe mode then I can log in and use computer.
    I tried Daz's loader for Windows 7 but it did not work

    Its an HP desktop computer that was installed with wrong Vista disk I assume.

    I was hoping for an easy solution
    Easier to blow it out and install win7 and use Daz

    There probably will be easy solution but cannot help unless you Post an MGADIAG report.

    Vista is quite different than Win7 as all I would have to do is run Daz loader.
    Does it make a difference if its expired with no days left.
    Vista computer is at a friends house not close so it not so easy but thanks.

    No, as long as all system files are unmodified, activation state doesn't matter.
