  • I recently got my friend a copy of windows vista home premium (Upgrade for Christmass and I accidently gave him my full windows vista install. I didnt notice it tell just now when I looked at my vista case.. he had allready installed vista on his computer. will this mess my copy of windows vista up with microsoft? it was by accident. and he uninstalled it today and installed his windows xp professional. later on he will update from the update version that I got for him for christmass.


    Hopefully every thing is ok and I dont loose 1 ability of a rienstall for vista since you can only install it so many times.
