Hey Guys, New to the forum here and I'm completely lost and clueless as to what to do. I been looking around and searching but I haven't been able to figure it out. I don't know if I need to mod my bios or what else is required in the process. I have a dell computer which I have wiped clean, deleted previous dell partitions that had XP on it and installed a copy of Vista Ultimate on. Unfortunately the key I obtained from a friend won't activate. Can someone please point me in right direction to which I can figure out how to activate or reinstall a clean copy that will activate on this computer. Thanks to everyone in advance.
