    I am hoping to put vista on my 2nd computer because it has a faster (2.5GHz)
    processor than my current one. This older computer crashed when I tried to
    get rid of a root kit hijack and I screwed up XP. So the old computer cant
    boot. I have what i guess is the key on a sticker on the housing, but no
    recovery CDs and I figured why pay HP to send me recovery CDs when I could
    just load the Vista Beta on it?
    I took the HD out of it and put it into this computer and formatted it and
    put it back into the faster computer. I should be receiving the Vista DVD
    from MS this week.
    Will I just be able to put in the DVD and let it set itself up or will I
    need to do more, such as reload XP or do some more prep to that HD?
