No, you do not have to reinstall Vista, if you did a clean install, read this. You do not have to reinstall.

Justd do it the way it shows in the tutorial.

In the future, make a backup and you will never have to reinstall with the DVD.

If you did a clean install then (not upgrade) you can do one now. Google clean install with upgrade in win 7

The first one will ask, just give it time. You will begin to lose services. The second install will ask, too. Where did you get this DVD that install without a key? It should have asked during the install process. If you did not give it then you have 30days.

Based upon everything that I know, starting at 30 days you are suppose to get reminders to activate. Then they begin do reduce functionality and even stop updates. You said this did not happen, I cant comment.
