Activation of WINDOWS VISTA oem with another oem drive?

HI I have a computer with windows vista business on that key. Apparently, I do not have the original OEM drive but I have a dell windows vista Enterprise drive. the product to activate my acer desktop computer?

Hello

A manufacturer of recovery disc is designed for a particular brand and computer model; they are not interchangeable.

Here is the link to order the Acer recovery disks:

http://us-store.Acer.com/RCD/

And if the Acer never included a drive to purchase, you should have a recovery Partition on your hard disk to reinstall Vista to how it was when new.

With an Acer, you press Alt + F10 at startup to start the process of recovery back to new condition.

See you soon.

  • I just bought a G6 Pavilion with windows 8, where is the product key for windows?

    As above, there is a stricker saying Windows 8 64 and that's it.

    I need the product key, as to prefer a clean install and need complete recoverability in the event of a HARD disk failure.

    When I buy a laptop with a BONE, I expect to have the operating system, not 'rent' it until something bad happens.

  • Benefits of having two disk partitions; an a small boot with Windows 8, and drive the rest?

    Just got a new computer Asus Cm6870 with Windows 8 and a 2 TB hard drive.


    Can anyone think why the manufacturer who has installed Windows 8 created a c: 150 GB (which is half full) and a 1.7 to d: (remains)?  Ease of recovery?  Backup?

    I would have preferred a player only, that way my libraries (documents, music, pictures, videos,...), downloads and other data files can be on the same drive.

    Hi Phantomiz,

    Thanks for posting your query in the Microsoft Community Forums.

    According to the description, it seems you want to know about several partitions on the hard drive. I'll be happy to help you with this problem.

    It is not recommended to have the data and files of the operating system on the same partition. It is because if the operating system files are corrupt, your computer go to no start situation. In this scenario, you will lose all the data that you have on your c: drive. Otherwise, if you save your data in the d: drive, you can reinstall the c: drive and your data is safe in the d: drive.

    I hope it helps. If you have any questions about Windows in the future, please let us know. We will be happy to help you.

  • New computer with Windows 7, stuck on the specific update

    Hello world!
    I have recently (last Saturday) purchased a new HP laptop with Windows 7 installed. The computer is now going through the standard (I guess they are standard) updates for Windows and successfully completed several rounds of them. Last night after having turned it off the computer began another series of updates, with 14 in the total bundle. She started 1 of 14 around 20:00 and started 4 of 14 at 22:30. From 08:30 the next morning, he was still on 4 of 14.
    Is this an update that takes 12 hours to install, or is there another problem causing my computer to not to go beyond the update? I found no way to bypass the update or cancel it.

    Thank you!

  • After the reinstallation of Vista (32 bit) I'm done with Windows and most of the stuff on the disk 1 (c), but with stuff on the disk 2 (d).

    original title: after reinstallation of Vista (32 bit), I found myself with Windows and most of the stuff on the disk 1 (c), but with stuff on the disk 2 (d). It's hard to backup.

    I wish all the disk 0, which is 250 GB, leaving the 1 free 500 GB disc to have been the repository of backup and archiving of others.  But I don't want to have to reinstall everything.  I couldn't move bootmgr, BOOTSECT. BAK and 'boot' folder on the disk 1 (c) by somehow the system partition?  Then there would be no OS stuff on disk 0 (D :); back, but better than mixed.)  What happens if I disconnect physically the smallest disk, Startup Repair will make the disc with Windows boot and system partitions? Thank you.

    Password and username are all correct. POP and SMTP everything is correct.

    Help!

    This kind of behavior is very often due to antivirus.  You are using.  If its McAfee or Norton get rid of them completely.   There are others who are also incompatible.  Everything you try, make sure that the analysis of e-mail is disabled.   You can also try to repair the database and see if that helps (see www.oehelp.com/WMUtil/).  And see also www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3
