Re: New motherboard and potential OS problem?
If it's not activated, you can use it perfectly for 30 days, you still get updates, but it keeps bugging you that it's not activated. In Windows 7 you can extend the 30 days to 120, but I don't know about Vista.
But again, there is a way around it. Google 'Vista phone activation' or something.
