You could always consider a Linux distro like Ubuntu. It's free, no Product Key and no activation required: http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu | Report abuse Reply to phil22 The Stealthinator February 8, 2013 9:12:24 AM If the machine you need to activate Vista on, came with Vista, the product will be on a sticker either at the back (if it's a desktop) or at the bottom (if it's a laptop). | Report abuse Reply to The Stealthinator WyomingKnott April 8, 2013 9:24:36 AM Or you could pick up an old Vista retail version on ebay or some other online site. Why Vista at this late date? | Report abuse Reply to WyomingKnott Saga Lout April 8, 2013 11:43:40 AM By "this late date" do you mean the thread started in February or Vista has been declared useless since it came out in 2006? | Report abuse Reply to Saga Lout Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows Vista>I need to buy/find product key for activation of my window vista... they tell me> Related ressources: ForumCan i reinstall windows vista using product key on sticker ?
