I got my Vista Ultimate Promotion disks!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So awhile back there was a thing on microsoft's website where you could enter the info for a free vista ultimate disk. Well I just received mine, never actually thought that I would. It's a 3 pack containing Windows Vista Ultimate w/ SP1, Office Professional 2007 180 Trial, and Desktop Deployment Toolkit. I'm pretty sure the Vista has like a 30 day trial or something, but it's still pretty cool. I got some pictures from my cell phone real quick to show you guys.

Yeah, congrats, I'm still waiting on mine. I ordered on the first day the guy posted it in the news secrtion, and it hasnt gotten here. Mail hasn't come yet today, so we'll see.

Got mine too today. I heard the Vista is an evaluation version that doesn't expire (didn't try it yet). Since the DVD is a Vista 32bit with SP1, can the CD-Key be used for a normal Vista Ultimate 64bit (I know the CD-keys can be used for 32 or 64bit, but not sure if the SP1/non SP1 will make them non-compatible)?

I can confirm that I have used a Windows Vista Home Premium Disk with a Windows Vista Home basic key and it did work. It just loaded during the Basic version since that is what the key is tied to. I am assuming this will hold true through all version as long as you have a 64, 32, Home, Ultimate key you can use whatever disk since its all tied to the key. Thats my assumption at least.
