Yeah, those 2 (XP&Vista) came from Dell with previous computers via my parents. The Vista one might be OEM but somehow the XP is Retail, both 32-bit. I just built a new rig, (8GB) stretching my own cash as far as possible. I've hated Vista with a passion, and wanted to make sure that 7 was going to be worth leaving XP for, bearing cost in mind.
I realize just
plugging the key in would only be false security. I want a clean install, from XP/Vista if necessary, especially since I went tweaking havoc around this registry and now some things appear to be missing and updates won't install... ^____^U
Ah, can't wait to make it home. Thank you so much!
