Vista Home to Vista Ultimate Product Key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I bought a Dell laptop 2 years ago, came installed with Vista Home.  I purchased Vista Ultimate for upgrading.  During the upgrade process, it prompts me for the windows Vista produc key.  This is the product key for the original windows.  I purchased the Dell computer from Best Buy and in neither on the laptop nor in the windows re-install CDs do I find the product key.  The re-install has a 20 digit number on the packaging, the product key is 25.  Any idea how I can get the product key from the computer.  I have been going around in endless circles with Microsoft, Best Buy and Dell.

    Any ideas?

    You bought Vista Ultimate from Where? Did it come in a box?
