Re: installing the anytime upgrade dvd

The Windows Vista Anytime Upgrade DVD is only
valid with a "retail" Windows Vista product key. It
will not be valid with an HP OEM product key.

We wanted to install the dvd because we wanted the HP CRAP removed from the
system on a HP MEDIA center m7750n. After 1 week MICROSOFT locked down the
computer made us re input the product key off the tower and was told by
MICROSOFT it was a pirated dvd. Any ideas y this happened
