Microsoft is making new demands to keep piracy at bay.
So when you run into this you have only to call the company that you paid the money to for that Vista Ultimate license.
You have a license issue and not a technical one. And no one here should tell you ways to get around Microsoft license traps.
The drivers issue is an old one. After years of searching for drivers today I advise to install the OS that the laptop came with and try to get by.
Well I will start here and say that I got a Vista ultimate full disc so I can upgrade to Ultimate,,but when I start my computer in f12 it comes up to ask me iff I want to install, when I say yes install ,it asks for serial number ,when I put in serial number it will not install as I am not connected to the internet, I am only connected via 3g usb but when this page comes up I cannot connect to internet ,and then it refuses to install, there are only3 icons that I can see on disc and that is bootmng, sources,and boot, there is no setup link ,,I did install it once and registered it but decided to go back to ultimate as I could not find the drivers for Toshiba A200
Satilite,I really only want to upgrade if possible otherwise I will lose all my drivers, and Toshiba said that they wont sell me a upgrade disc, I am not very computer savvy 64 yr old so hope you can help
