I'm not sure how much there worth considering it's just the disk
#3
anyone can copy the disk for you if they have it - its the COA that represents the license and you have that..

Dont have one myslef but I'm sure some kind HUKDer will help out - dont buy one !

Surely theres nout wrong with going on thepiratebay and getting a copy seeing as you own the licensce to xp?
#5
just download it from the newsgroups, you will get it fast
#6
I guess maybe as his boot disk is kaput he might not be able to get online ?
#7
I do have a vista ultimate disc, would it have all versions on the same disc?
#8
i think all vista discs have all versions...it's just the serial that determins what gets installed

Hi Peter, where are you based? I have one, but won't be at a post office anytime soon

In that case all might be ok, i'll give it a go, thanks everyone.

If you can borrow a vista basic disk, boot from the disc format the hard drive reinstall vista , you will not be able to register this disc but there is a change code section ,change this code to your laptop code and it will register ok i have done this on my hp laptop i forgot to make a backup disc silly me
