    I purchased a desktop system with Vista Home Premium 32-bit.
    purchased Vista Ultimate 32-bit full install (not upgrade) and used i
    to upgrade my computer to Ultimate. So really, now my Home Premiu
    license isn't being used, and I don't have a CD for it. If I were t
    find an installation CD, is it possible for me to install Home Premiu
    on another computer with the old license

    So looks like after I started this thread, the "similar threads" sectio
    below came up with a thread that my search didn't find previously. I
    turns out that the OEM license is not transferrable at all. So I gues
    my question is answered. :

    If Home Premium was preinstalled by the manufacturer, then what you have is
    an OEM license that cannot be transferred to another machine. If you
    originally bought the retail version of Home Premium, then by all means you
    can use it on another machine.
