Hi, Just found this forum and would like some help/advice please. I never had any urge to use Vista as I had only heard/read it wasn't very good. I now prefer it to Win7! I was looking to get a Win7 from my daughter when she went back to Uni and would have been able to get it for £30.00. However, several weeks ago a kind ( read naive ) German guy advertised on Ebay UK, multiple sales of Vista Business edition. He kindly offered them at a starting bid of 1 penny. I along with ten other buyers got into him and bought at quite silly prices, I bought two, one for £5.00 and the other for £10.00. They turned out to be HP Vista. To install you have to have a Windows running and the setup screen appears after inserting the disk. Won't work from a cold boot to the cd drive. Message, this must be an HP comp etc! To my question: I have used Nlite to create a slipstream version of XP so I know what it does, however I don't know if this Vista disc will do the same, i.e. will it pick up the HP boot files? I would like to have an install disk so I don't need a Windows already installed as previously stated. All help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
