  1. I have the Windows Vista home premium DVD , shipped with DELL Studio laptop.i want to have Vista in my desktop too.But the DELL vista DVD installs the OS for a period of 90 days only on my desktop.So is there a way to create a fresh bootable VISTA DVD from the Dell Vista DVD.?? i don't want to install it on my desktop by emulating the DELL BIOS in my desktop ( coz it doesn't recognise my creative soundcard).I have an Intel motherboard.
    Plz help me out....!!!!!!!!
    Thanx in Advance............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You will have to "bite the bullet" and get a retail copy of Vista for your desktop PC
