    Dear friend,

    First I’d like to point out the serious mistake you have committed. You are saying that you have bought Windows Vista installation DVD from your friend. A window disk is provided with a only one genuine key and your friend have already used it. So if you go for registering your window with that key it won’t go to be successful. If you want to buy Windows Vista you can also go online, do payment, and they will provide you a genuine key ignoring from where you have get that Windows Vista installation disk. You should check that your current Windows XP system is compatible with new Windows Vista before purchasing.

    Second, if you want to take full advantage of Windows Vista that instead of upgrading Windows XP system with Windows Vista you should go for a clean install of Windows Vista. And this will also solve your problem. If you’re worried about the loss of files on your current system, you can make a backup of them and can transfer them to your newly installed Windows Vista operating system without any problem.
