If you have purchased legal copy of Vista, you will be having a Part Number on the Vista DVD. Call Microsoft Tech Support and provide them with this Part Number. they will get a new product key. This will work for you.

It's time to purchase a replacement disk-drive, and then to install Windows Vista onto it, and then connect the "old" drive as a 'SLAVE' disk-drive, to see if you can copy any files onto the "new" disk-drive.

I need a valid key code for windows vista that i can activate windows


You can only get a valid product key with an original installation CD of Window Operating System.
If you enter a product key of a different Operating System into into your current copy of Vista, your Operating System will be blocked, there fore, it is not advisable.
Get an original copy of vista, with a valid product key

Universal xp pro key code


I'm sorry to say, but legally no one can give you a key to install XP. We have no way of verifying that bought a legitimate copy of Windows XP Professional, or if you just downloaded a pirated copy.

Sorry for not being able to help any further than this, but I hope you understand that we CAN'T help you with this request.

Please give a product key


The product key is on the sticker on the side or back of the computer that you need the key to activate. If you don't find that sticker you may need to find the "Original Installation Disk" and the key may be with them. I nor any other user may give you our product keys unless we want to destroy our own copies of the OS we purchased. DO NOT ASK US AGAIN!!!

I want Download windows vista ultimate


You would need to be a Microsoft Certified Partner to download a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate from their MSDN website. I cannot imagine it being available for free (legally). You may download Service Packs for free but not the product. You can purchase Vista Ultimate as an upgrade from office supply stores on sale occasionally.

Long booting up in takes 2-3 hrs. before my OS start


Two to three hours is a long time! It sounds like your hard drive is getting ready to crash.

If your computer is running, click Start and, in the search box, type

eventvwr

and press enter. (If you have XP, click Start -> Run and type eventvwr).

Under Windows Logs, click System. On the right side, click Source. All the events will sort by source. Scan the list for any "disk" errors. If you are getting disk errors, your hard drive is crashing. You should either take your computer to a competent professional to get the hard drive imaged, or purchase a new hard drive and do the imaging.
