Vista validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have replaced my PB computer but reused the PB recovery disc with Vista Home Premium, included. I am now getting a message that the Product Validation key is incorrect. While I do not have the original Product Key , I do have the purchase documenation for the PB computer.

    How do I now preceed?

  • You cannot use the pre-installed key/license from one computer on another - you will have to purchase a valid license for the new computer, or reinstall its own preinstalled OS.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
