    NO. you'll find the disc will be a dell oem version which can only be used with the laptop it was supplied.

        Is it a recovery disk or a "proper" vista disk? If its a recovery disk then no it wont install at all. If its a "proper" vista disk then you will probably be able to install it but possibly wont be able to activate it as it has already been issued and installing it on more than 1 pc at a time is not allowed.

            Its a "proper" disk is it true it can only be installed on one pc and one pc only? what does that mean if you upgrade the motherboard? If you cant activate it what does that mean?

              you can activate the copy more than once, when you on the activation wizard, use the phone when you do it, it will ask questions such as have you made any significant hardware changws just say yes then they will carry on with the activation, worked for me serveral times, and dell oem disks will work on any computer all the difference is, ot will install dell help but not like your gunna use help anyway!
