hi, I stumbled onto this forum. Great Site!!! I'm planning to buy a Gigabyte mobo, and install Vista x64 on it. After reading thru serveral methods of activating Vista, i'm planning to use the Hard Flashing of BIOS method. Seems like a good long term solution... Can you guys advice, what do I actually need? Do I need a OEM copy of Vista? Or any copy do? Thanks in advance!
