Re: lost key to vista ultimate
if you legally own the software, you can get it from the microsoft office support 24/h with no problem whatsoever.
if you downloaded your version of vista from a torrent or somebody borrowed to you well, then, you should be able to find something googleing vista ultimate+serial number.

If you have OEM edition of Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you can downgrade to Windows XP Professional, including Tablet PC Edition and x64 Edition. Only the OEM editions qualify for a downgrade.
To install a copy of Windows XP Professional with the product key that came with the copy, and then when you hit the activation screen -- which is near the end of the installation process -- select the activate by phone option rather than the online method. You'll likely end up talking with a live rep; tell him that you're downgrading from Vista to XP, and give him the Vista product key. The rep is supposed to walk you through the rest.
When you say vista ultimate was installed, do you mean you installed it yourself?
Is the COA on the bottom of the laptop for Vista Ultimate?
If the COA is not for ultimate( usually home or premium) then the copy of Windows re installed may not be genuine.
If all is well and it is a genuine copy then a call to microsoft is your only option(IF it is a retail copy)
If it is an OEM copy of windows you may have to pay for a new key
You can check if this product key that you have just mentioned is located at the back of your laptop. Determine if the Operating System is windows Vista which is stipulated at the back of it. If you have a windows Vista CD, check if it is for Ultimate. Then insert the CD and restart the pc. Then repeatedly press F12 to boot to CD. Select ODD or CD/DVD ROM option.
When installing the operating system, check if it prompts you to ask the product key, then it will activate your windows.
your window was not activated before. use the contact microsoft console by calling the office you will be given another key or u reinstall another OS in it without formatting, this will store your old file in the folder to be named window.old. good luck
