    why not get the vista business licence with the downgrade to XP. if you get it from the right supplier, you also get the upgrade to windows 7 when it comes out!

    We have a xp volume licence so is that the best way to go? Also anyone having trouble getting through to Dell as they are always busy?

    if you have the volume licence, why get the OS in the first place? Save yourself some money

    Install the OS
    Install the drivers
    Install your software
    Ghost/Clone the harddrive

    Will take a day at most for 30 hard drives!

    1. If you have volume licence you need a base OS on the machine, volume licencing is an upgrade to an existing OS. If you install a Volume Licence software without a base OS installed you will be breaking licensing terms.
    2. Dell dont ship without an OS

    To ghost 30 machines it will take an hour, it takes longer setting up all the machines.

    All Acer Vista Business PCs and Laptops come with XP Pro downgrade and Windows 7 upgrade.

    ALl Acer Vista Home Premium PCs and Laptops have Windows 7 upgrade.

    The upgrade must be registed with Acer before December and will cost about £12-15.

    Hope that helps.

    Dell told me you can downgrade to xp pro from vista home premium but Simon from CPLTD has informed me that that is wrong and you can only do that with vista business or higher??

    Whats a volume licence? if you mean you have a schools agreement or other such licence in place you still need a base o/s? you can just install onto a bare metal machine.

    If you have a VLK XP Pro key then the machine still has to be licenced to run that OS?
