    Have an old Dell Vista HP re-installation DVD that I used to install Windows on a new non-Dell desktop. I don't have the original activation code for the DVD.

    I couldn't really figure out whether the sticky thread on this forum would work for me, seeing as I am not using the DVD on a Dell branded system. Would that method work? Do I just need a Dell Vista HP activation key?

    Many thanks.
