I don't think M$$FT Licen$$ing will let you do that. Vista registers itself to the mobo. There might be a way to get around it, but I'm not aware of what that might be. What you might want to try is asking in the Vista area of http://www.msfn.org Here nearly everyone is "just" a user. Some of the guys there are pretty serious techs. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
