No , You cannot install Vista on HP desktop that is on Toshiba Laptop, Even if you have license. Your HP won't accept the vista disk.

I lost vista software


If you still have your license key sticker then you can use any Vista disk. A friend's one for example.
Or if you want to use recovery:
1. Turn on Computer
2. Hold F11 for 10-20 (or F10 if nothing comes up, restart first!!)
3. Once it loads if it comes up with system restore, put "no" on that.
4. Next system recovery, put yes and your on your way!

Recovery - Restores original factory settings just like you bought it

Vista home edition


Unfortunatly Toshiba do not provide an operating system disc with their machines it's just the recover disc which is designed to restore factory settings. I have tried but failed to get just the O/S to install. In theroy you should be able to get a copy of Vista from Toshiba as you correctly stated you have payed for it. While your looking at doing a clean install I would recommend download the free windows 7 RC from microsofts website. It's so much better than vista.

You can often fix it right back up using the original Vista installation disk it has a System Recovery Tool. Set your computer to boot from DVD in the BIOS), insert the disc and restart.

Invalid product key Windows Vista Home Premium with Toshiba


this could be because someone took the license key that was origionally installed on your computer, did you lent it out? The same product key can not be activated on 2 computers unless it has multiple licenses. I had this problem, but i simply called microsoft and they shut down the other product key and gave me a new one for free.

My laptop is asking me to activate windows vista. i put in the code that is on the back of the laptop but it did not work. i bought the laptop just a few weeks ago brand new with everything put on at best...


Go back to best buy, somebody may have already used keygen and used your license key which is why its no good. Microsoft won't help you but simply tell you to go back to where you bought your laptop. I know, that sucks.

I need the steps to take to install windows xp on my pre-loaded vista.


Hello there.

Unfortunately, even though you have paid for a Vista license, this does not mean you can just install any copy of Windows XP. You need to purchase either Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional. If its a business system you would be better with Windows XP Pro.

The reason for purchasing is that the software is licensed to you, you may wish to contact Toshiba and see if they can swap your Vista license for a Windows XP license. The other option is picking up a copy of Windows in the shop and installing it yourself. This is no easy task unless you have experience doing so.

Please try either contacting Toshiba to see what they say, or see about purchasing your own windows XP.

Hope this helps.
