    No, this is a recovery disk for an already installed version of 64bit OS.

    Look on ebay or other sites people put their OLD versions there for resale.

    This appears to be the Install disk. Go to the bottom of the link, and click ask a question, and verify with the seller.
  5. my system has a windows vista product key on the side. what is this for? does it mean i can do it without a coa key? because there are some on ebay without them.
