Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Hi! I've bought hp pavilion a6030in desktop last year. This is my first computer, and i didn't had much experience then, I had some problem with it (virus) and I took to the dealer and he suggested to install windows XP, and I did as he suggested, but since it was a pirated windows XP, I had problems updating from microsoft. I went back to the dealer to ask to reinstall vista that was preinstalled, but he says I have to buy a new key.
Can you guide me to this matter and give me proper suggestions.
Plz reply soon. Thanking you,
Before you spend any money, try this:
Reboot your computer. As soon as it begins booting watch for a short message like,
"For Setup Press F10, for Recovery Press F11".
If there was a Recovery partition on your computer, it may still be good.
Press the noted F key for Recovery. (If you miss it, try again. You only get a few seconds to make the selection.) It will open a program that you can run to reinstall your system the same way it was when you purchased it. If you have important files on your drive, back them up because they will be lost when you run the Recovery program.

I believe the cheapest route to go would to buy a new Windows XP CD with the a new Product Key. I've seen it on some sites as low as $50. Ebay being one suggestion. If cost isnt really option and you wanted Vista then you might go ahead and get a new copy of Vista. I know Vista requires more system resources to run but since it came pre-installed on your system there shouldn't be any problem in putting that Operating System back on.
