That depends. If the disk is an original Microsoft disc, you will need to have your CD key for the installation. If it has the computer vendor's name on it, you may not need they key as it could be embedded in the automated install file that it will probably want to use for the setup (also on the CD).

Please make sure that if you've forgotten Windows 7 password or Vista password, click on ophcrack Vista LiveCD. If you've forgotten XP password, click on ophcrack XP LiveCD.<br /> 2. Cain & AbelUnlike Ophcrack and other popular Windows password recovery programs,<b><span> </span>Cain & Abel</b><span> </span>requires access to Windows under an administrator account. In fact, Cain & Abel is a bit more complicated to use than other password recovery tools which is usually unavailable for Windows Vista as is said.<br />If you have no way of getting in to your Windows PC, you will not be able to use Cain & Abel to recover your password. Moreover, before you can use Cain & Abel, you'll need to download a rainbow table. These large databases of passwords are required so Cain & Abel can reset the forgotten windows password.<br /> 3. Available Admin AccountIt's well known that Windows administrator users have rights to change password of other user account on the same computer. So if you forgot password of the user account, just enter your administrator account and do as follows:<br /> <ul> <li>1.

Windows Password Reset DiskIt is considered the easiest way to reset Windows password when you are forbiddened to access your laptop with protected password. However, many of us haven't enough consciousness on creating a Windows password reset disk before they lost the password.<br /> <ul> <li>1. Type a wrong password on the Windows logon screen.</li> <li>2. Click<span> </span><b>OK</b><span> </span>when Windows displays a message that the password is incorrect and "Reset password" link will appear.</li> <li>3. Click<span> </span><b>Reset password</b><span> </span>to pop up Password Reset Wizard screen, and then click<span> </span><b>Next</b>.</li> <li>4. Follow the steps in the Password Reset Wizard to create a new password.</li></ul><b>Note:</b>This solution takes effect provided you have created a Windows password reset disk for your Windows account in advance.<br /> 5. Typing Ctrl + Alt + Del (Only Under Windows XP)This option is only for Windows XP. Furthermore, the default administrator account on Windows XP is enabled and not password protected by default, which is disabled by default on Windows 7 and Vista.<br /> <ul> <li>1. Turn on your Windows XP machine and go to its logon screen.</li> <li>2. Press<span> </span><b>Ctrl+ Alt +Del</b><span> </span>twice to pop up the classic logon box.</li> <li>3.

Problem installing Caesar 3 on Windows Vista


Hi!,
I'm using a vista premium SP 1.. So I did got the above errors.
What i did was, explore the disc-->right click setup.exe and click properties--> compatibility tab--> select run for win xp 2 and under admin.

Then when I installed I choosed a MINIMAL install option. If you the the above step yet choose full the error comes up.
Should work :))

Its annoying to insert disc everytime when you wanna play because of the minimal installation option but i figured to 'burn' and .iso image to my hard disk and use a cd/dvd image mounting tool. This part is purely optional tho:P

How to reformat back to windows vista ?


You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.

There are many programs for viewing the key while in windows so that you can write it down. Please be careful though as Microsoft looks down on these things.

Not possible xp installation


How to Downgrade Vista to XP Downgrading from Windows Vista to Windows XP is almost like installing Windows XP for the first time. You should take all the normal precautions like backing up all your important files and record important passwords in a different place, preferably on a CD. When you downgrade from Windows Vista to XP, note that Windows Vista will be completely removed from your system.
(Note: There is a way to have both Vista and XP in a dual boot configuration, but that's an option for more advanced users. See Dual Booting Vista and XP for more info on that.)
Before you begin the XP installation, make sure that the necessary XP hardware drivers are available, or included on the XP disk provided by your PC vendor. If in doubt, check the vendor's website or poke around with your favorite search engine to see if others have attempted the XP install on the same hardware. You may be able to install XP without all the needed drivers, but some hardware may not work afterwards.
Also, make sure that you have a genuine Windows XP CD before you begin the downgrade. Be sure to read the section earlier in this article to see if you qualify for a low/no cost XP recovery disk from your PC vendor. If not, perhaps you have an XP disc that came with another computer. If you've upgraded an existing computer from XP to Vista, the best choice would be the XP install/recovery disc that came with that computer. One some PC's the vendor doesn't ship a CD, but the recovery CD can be created from disk images on the hard drive. If all else fails, you can always buy a copy of Windows XP on Ebay. Just be sure it's a legal, licensed copy.
Follow these steps to install Windows XP on your Vista machine:
  • Insert your Windows XP install/recovery CD and restart your computer.
  • Install Windows XP normally, providing either the product key that came with the disk, or the one you got from Microsoft customer support. If the installer warns you that another copy of Windows is already installed, don't worry. Remember, this install will wipe out your existing Vista installation.
  • Activate your copy of Windows XP when it prompts you to do so. If you run into the "already activated" problem, you can use the option to activate by phone.
  • If you own Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, explain to the rep that you want to use your Downgrade Rights to install XP Pro.
  • If you own Vista Home Basic/Premium, or you are installing XP Home Edition, don't mention ANYTHING about Vista. Just give the rep your XP product key (not the Vista key), explain that you are installing XP on a new hard drive, and tell them you need to activate.

Demo problem


If you have installed vista as a multiboot sytem, then you can do the below: Otherwise you have to do as tom19511 said:

Uninstall Windows Vista on a multiboot system
Applies to all editions of Windows Vista.

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista. However, you can change the code that starts the operating system (often called the master boot code), and then remove Windows Vista from your multiboot system and return to Windows XP or Windows 2000. You will need your Windows Vista installation disc for this procedure.

Before you begin, back up your programs, files, and settings. Removing Windows Vista is an advanced procedure that could result in losing information stored on your computer. For information about backing up data, search Help and Support for "back up."

1) Insert the Windows Vista installation disc.
2) Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. getopencontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3) Type [DVD drive letter]:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force and then press ENTER.
For example, if the DVD drive letter is F, type f:\boot\ bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force.
4) Eject the Windows Vista installation disc.
5) Restart your computer.
Your computer will start in the previous version of Windows that you have installed.
6) Delete Windows Vista files and folders, such as the Program Files, Users, and Windows folders, manually.

Note: You can also remove Windows Vista by reformatting the partition where it is installed, but do this only if that partition is not the boot partition. Reformatting the boot partition might make your computer unable to start.
