    I have got a vista ultimate VL key which was installed on another persons laptop. I tried to use it again on my laptop for activation. but its giving me a message that the key ha been used. is there any other way I can use it again?
    the key is not an oem version.

    Extract your Vista DVD and inside the Sources folder create a new text file and copy paste the text below inside and save the file as PID.TXT

    [PID]
    Value=(your OEM Vista key here)

    Now take your OEM XRM-MS file that matches your key and copy the file to:

    SOURCES\$OEM$\$$\SYSTEM32\OEM

    If the $OEM$ and subfolders dont exsist, create them.

    Burn the contents as a bootable DVD and you have your OEM disk!
