    Hello

    You don't say what kind of license of Windows you have.

    It depends on the type of license you have, as to whether you can transfer it or not.

    Pre-installed Licenses OEM (HP, Acer, etc.) and the Microsoft System Builder OEM licenses are tied to the first machine that they are installed on and channels of license when this machine dies.

    OEM licenses are not transferable.

    If you have purchased your own license for sale retail of Windows and installed yourself, yes you can transfer it to another computer.

    Retail licenses are transferable.

    Hello

    No - what are the two Acers come with a recovery disk?

    If this is not the case, one of them would have a recovery partion, which specifically is to reinstall the operating system on it.

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

    All data are lost when you do the above.

    And for the lost disc, contact Acer and ask them to send you recovery disks.

    They do that for a small fee:

  • Upgrade in Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.

    I am considering the upgrade from Home Premium to Ultimate. I already bought the software Windows Vista Ultimate Edition at a great price from Circuit City when they were going out of business. I am currently using Windows Vista Home Premium. I need to install a program called SolidWorks 2008 CAD - 2009 in College and this program is already bought and in my possession. Family Premium is not compatible with this program. I really don't want to go because I believe that it will lose the ultimate software, but I think, that I have no other choice in order to use my copy of SolidWorks 2008 - 2009. So I have a few questions related to it. Is there a way to get around this, and if not, is there something I need to do or uninstall until I try to install this upgrade? I can't afford to have any problems during this update because I need every day my computer for school. Is a one time installation were I will not be able to use this ultimate software on another computer ever? Thanks for your help.

    Use the foregoing for checks for hardware and software compatibility.

    If it is not Compatible, it is not Compatible with Vista.
    Changing the Vista version it will be not Compatible.

    Read this info on running your program in XP SP2 Compatibility Mode:

    If this is not Vista compatible, read the info on the link above.
    It works for some programs, but not all.

    This applies to software programs, NOT hardware drivers

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Looking for Service Pack levels during the upgrade:

    On your installed operating system Service Pack level cannot be greater than what is on the disk to upgrade.

    Click Start > right click on computer > properties > system > it will tell you which SP you have install.

    If the OS installed Service Pack 2 and Service Pack 1 upgrade disk > uninstall SP2 installed operating system > install the upgrade > reinstall SP2.

    And run the upgrade of a Vista operating system.

    If it is a retail upgrade license, it can be transferred to another machine.
    But it can be installed on a single computer at a time.

  • Get BSOD when updated in Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

    I got the Windows Update for Monday, 30/11/09. Under the option updated, I clicked on the update Realtek for my wireless 801.11 b / g driver.  During the download on the window updates screen, he says that he was downloading updates. Then he went to install the updates and I got the BSOD about 3/4 of the way through.  Reboot the computer and to the Welcome screen, it said it was set up the updates.  He crossed the 1st to the 3rd stage, but remained at 0% and then in Windows. When the desktop is loaded, the window "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" came.  When I click on "Find solutions", he went the BSOD and restarted all over again with the same message "install updates" at the Welcome screen.  When I tried to cancel the window "windows has recovered...". ', he went the BSOD again and restarted again with the same method. The next time I tried to restart the computer and during the stop, he went to the BSOD and restarted everything again. This also happens when I try to shut down the computer.  The stop on the BSOD error message is Stop: 0x0000001A. Windows error that appears under Windows is 80070103.  I am running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition.  Help, please. How can I get out of this loop.  I tried the "Fix - It" program, but it's the same thing when he went to restart the computer. I know it has something to do with the appearance of the Windows Update, but I do not know how to break the loop of update.

    Bob,

  • BitLocker preinstalled Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

    I have BitLocker on a computer pre-installed with Windows Vista Ultimate Edition, if my TPM module has been disabled; I can see the link in the BitLocker Control Panel icon to turn on after clicking on it to turn it on, it tells me to turn on the TPM secure, restart, and follow the instructions. If I turn it on, when I click on the icon of BitLocker, it tells me that my computer is not configured with bitlocker, shows as 2 drives on the left, on the right it descriptions of the show with an 'x' next to a magnifying glass on a hard drive and the word "off" after the description. Is it the way it is supposed to look like when it will run. Because I put all perimeters to activation, the initialization and the establishment. The TPM is the correct version, group policy is set to the correct specifications, I did everything what I was instructed to do. I even let the TPM to create his or her own password. I initialized and took possession of the TPM, I turned it on, I put it to ignore blocked orders. I installed the security chip. My hard drive is narrowed, there is the extra partition specified as S:, Ok he said after doing this, I have to reinstall the software, but after reinstalling the software, it says it has deleted my second partition. I did it at least 10 times aggravating. So I used the BitLocker configuration tool to shrink the drive and create the partition. Now what I am doing wrong?

  • Windows Vista Ultimate Edition will not be upgraded to Windows 7

    Windows 7 Upgrade says he cannot directly upgrade Windows XP, duh?  I ran the Upgrade Advisor before running the upgrade software and did not get this stupid message. I get only when the software upgrade performs its checks.  I am running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition with all updates to September 24, 2013.

    Which edition of Windows 7? It matches the edition of Vista you are trying to upgrade to?

    When important changes to your computer, for example an upgrade, it is always recommended that you back up your system before installing a new version of Windows. In your case, you can upgrade to Windows 7 depending on the edition and the architecture of Windows Vista, you have installed. If you are running a 32-bit version of Vista and upgrade to a 64-bit (Windows 7 edition) version, you'll have a pure make install, it is the opposite case.

    If you are using Windows Vista Home Basic or Premium consumer editions, you can only upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate. In addition, you can make downgrades, which means, if you are running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition now, you cannot downgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. You perform logical upgrades:

    Windows Vista Home Basic > Windows 7 Home Basic, Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Edition Home Premium > Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Professional, enterprise or ultimate edition

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Enterprise

    Windows Vista Ultimate > Windows 7 Ultimate.

  • Cannot upgrade Windows Vista Ultimate Edition after the HD upgrade

    I have an ASUS computer which is about five years old and works fine. It runs only Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit SP1.
    The HD has been giving signs which is failing. I bought a new HD and copied the old HD to the biggest news. Everything seems to work fine until I tried to run Windows Update. It does not allow me to update and gives the 8024A 000 error code every time I try to run it. I called ASUS for help and they said
    to contact me Microsoft.

    Thank you

    Harold

    I found the solution to this problem. I went to another Windows help forum. It is to reset the Windows Update program. I tried the one here on the Microsoft site, and it did not work. But I tried this one http://wind8apps.com/windows-update-error-code-8024a000/ and the fist solution worked like a charm. He fixed the update and install issues with Powershell 2.0. After that and a certain number of updates, it's updated, Windows Update will update to the latest version. After this release he went and found many updates, I had to install. So be patient, you're in for a little wait.
