    Hi great site. To start i updated vista 64bit to windows7 64 bit.I would like to run vista on another pc, I loaded it to the pc it gave me 30 days to register but now its gone into limited use mode with over 20 days left. I used the DAZ loader to try get around the warnings.would this cause the limited use message i get.The vista disc was for my acer laptop and i want to re install it on my hp Compaq desk top is this possible or am i doomed to shell out again.the vista has sp1 and KB938371 KB937287 KB935509 I turned auto updates off on installation.the currant system was windows XP i formatted the disc when loading vista 64bit,
    what can i do o_O

    Whatever OS you install next will ask you to choose if you want to format, just make that choice if there is nothing on the drive you want to save, otherwise only choose the partition you want to install OS on.
