    I have a few laptops that run Vista and I need to do a clean install on them.

    Instead of having to buy a new OS disc for each one is it possible to buy one and use on all machines?

    I was hoping that I'd be able to get the validation key for each machine and install from the one disc?

    Thanks

    Yes you can use one and the same for all machines. For validation you have to use the product key that is on the COA sticker on the bottom of each laptop - assuming those are Vista keys.

    Thanks. After looking at all the machines only one vista is working.

    I do have 2 windows 7 machines but only one install disc. I am assuming it's the same for these as well?
