Default Vista...

Recently bought a desktop. They are sending me the Vista cd, do I have to download it onto the desktop, or can I download it onto another computer? Thanks.

Default Re: Vista...

you dont have to download it, put the cd in, itll ask you to upgrade, and it upgrades (with a few more simple steps) im pretty sure you can install it on a different comp. this link should help you with that: http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=5932 (thanks to Raffaz

No, you won't be able to put it on another computer because the CD they are going to send you will only work on the computer it was intended to run on. (assuming your pc is a dell, gateway or a brand like that.)
