reinstall vista after downgrade RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My laptop came with vista business that was downgraded to xp thru the downgrade program.   If i reformat the laptop, can i install vista business back using the vista business product key shown on the sticker on the back of my laptop?   is there any problem with activation?

  • Hello City_Ash,

      Please contact the person or group that you conducted the downgrade thru.  I am not sure of the Licensing conditions for downgraded versions of Vista so I could not provide a reliable answer.

    Thank you,
