My advice is: when you buy a second hand computer, you must reinstall the operating system

How to reinstall Vista

Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

they do it for a nominal cost of $

also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

Ask them of the exact key sequence

or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

they contain all versions of vista

This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • How can I change the license to another host?


    I am replacing a host, but cannot change the license to the new host.

    The ability to change the license on the vCenter (administration, licenses, manage vsphere licenses) appears dimmed (unavailable).

    All the licenses that I own are associated with former guests. I can't add new hosts because all licenses associated with the former hosts. I removed the host the vCenter, but the license is always affected.

    How can I change the license of a former host (which no longer use) by the new host?

    Thank you!

    As mentioned earlier, it should actually take a few minutes, so with the two days, you've already waited, there seems to be something wrong. Please take a look at KB VMware: vCenter Server 6.0 incorrectly states the amount of licenses in use by the ESXi host to see if this helps you to identify/solve the problem. In the case where you don't consider opening a case of pension with VMware.

    Can I give an empty value for the owner?

    Links to other discussions on this topic will also be welcome.

    Thank you.

    Hi Yossi,

    Changing the owner to an empty value did not work properly for some reason any.

    This error message do you receive? I would not recommend this approach even if it happened to save the update, as you noted, it is safer to perform explicit reassignment as below to make sure the correct visibility on the issue.

    Change of ownership of a specific owner id has worked, including the administrator and the web service ID, and it seems like a safer way to do it.
