I would put it back on one of my laptops, but I have not the original CD, the key it is on the back of laptop. I tried a few Vista OS but none worked with the key....this was the reason I installed Win_7 on it.
I heard that support for Windows 7 OS will stop in 2015, it might be because of Windows 8,9,10…….
Thats because it is the in thing to hate on Vista.
Aside from the fact MS way understated the minimum requirements for it (MS recommended requirements should have been the minimum), if you had a good enough system, Vista ran fine, and SP1 made it even better.
Windows 7 would not be what it is without Vista (basically Windows 7 is Vista with SP3).
Mainstream support for Windows 7 will end 1/13/2015, but extended support does not end till 1/14/2020. Link
