I have here a broken (but not for long) gateway laptop. The hard disk drive is bad because my genius of a buddy here dropped it. So we've got a new hard disk drive here and I'm about to install it. However we don't have the gateway recovery discs, or obviously the recovery partition on account of that the old hard disk drive is completely bricked. No problem, we'll just use a regular Windows Vista Home Premium install CD... or so I would normally think. Problem is, the last time I tried to activate Vista using an OEM product key and a non-OEM CD, it didn't work so well. Is there a way that I can insert an OEM certificate into the OS or onto the CD to make it able to be activated with the gateway OEM key?
