  • Sorry, but your Windows Vista license was also stolen along with your laptop.  You need to file a claim with your insurance company for a total loss.

  • Yolky,


    The mgadiag report you posted shows a Genuine installation of Vista Home Basic, which has nothing to do with your description, because an installation of Vista that is not activated cannot be classified as Genuine by the mgadiag utility.


    Usually, new laptops come from their manufacturers with an Operating System already installed, did your new laptop come with an OS installed?


    If the Vista license for which you still have the discs is a full retail license, you should be able to install Vista on a brand new laptop and activate it using the Telephone Activation method.  If the Vista license that came with your old laptop is an OEM license, then Carey is right, the license is still with the stolen laptop and your possession of discs is immaterial.
