Re: does vista ask for serial during installation?
Yes it does. You enter the product key code first almost immediately once you pop in the Vista DVD. After the installation, you have to activate it. Well, it can activate it for you during the installation process. For that part, you have up to 30 days. Otherwise, it will lock you out or something.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
