Thread: Vista clean install with Ultimate upgrade




  1. #1

    Default Vista clean install with Ultimate upgrade

    How many have done it? Have you used the upgrade to do a clean install on a new computer without an os already installed? I have heard mixed reports from reputable people with some saying illegal and some saying do it because MS knows about this and are letting it happen?? Anyone care to comment?????

    I haven't done it myself and as far as I have read it is an "unintended" glitch by M$, it is possible but requires installing the Vista OS twice.

    M$ would never be able to tell if you did this anyway so really there is nothing to worry about unless your conscience bothers you.

    Personally I believe they made the error so why not exploit it.

    I mean who doesn't have XP these days anyway?

    Ok, how many themes and wallpapers do you guys have included in your versions of Vista? I think i am missing a bunch. For example, i have NO theme othere than Vista Basic and older Windows themes, as well as Aero. (I am on a laptop so i don't have a video card for aero)

    As far as wallpapers go, i have 29 + 7 widescreen. So 36 total. I think i should have a bunch more. I installed the trial of Ultimate right now.

    Trail versions probably don't have all the features that the full version does.
