you should have 30 days to activate Vista ,you could use it for that period ,just to test it ,
I did anyway .
depending on what you use the XP computer for on the internet you could still go online ,Microsoft is going to continue support for Microsoft security essentials for 1 year,

That Dell Branded DVD is likely one that came with a Dell PC that shipped with Vista pre installed. That's why it didn't come with a COA sticker. The sticker was on the PC it originally came with. When used on the original PC it would have used the OEM activation and not prompted for a Product Code. It was custom made for that PC. If you use it on your Dell XP PC you should be prompted to enter a product code. Even if your not, it won't be legal without the Vista COA sticker.

Meaning that I can install it on another pc when I stop using the first one. This I should be able to do many times as...
