    Hi,

     

    You can install Windows Vista without inputting the product key. After Windows Vista is installed, you can contact Microsoft Activation Center 888-571-2048 to activate the system.

     

    Hope it helps.

  • Do you have an "upgrade" or a "full" version Windows Vista license?

  • PLEASE when you tell people to call the Microsoft could you please tell them to dial a 1 before the 888-571-2048? They call me 12 times a day. Seriously.

    Please dial 1-888-571-2048

    Thanks!!
