Not really sure if anyone would know this, but its worth a shot.

My laptop previously had Vista on it but i bought Windows 8 pro at christmas, now i just got an awesome 1300$ desktop computer with windows 8 but not windows 8 pro,
so i want to take windows 8 pro off my laptop (so i can just have vista or NOT pro and put pro on my desktop, hopefully that makes sense to someone..
I did try the following - Settings>Change PC settings>General>Remove Everything & Re install Windows.
^ that just re-installs windows 8, i havent got the vista CD or anything like that, i could previously do it by pressing 'esc' on startup and doing a recovery but now that doesnt work :frown:

Any ideas?
Cheers

Nope, won't work, sorry.

May have been possible for Windows 7, but Windows 8 makes you buy an activation key each time.
And since you don't have the Vista disc, it won't be possible.

Why not just visit that one website where sea dogs come to park their ships at a dock?

That reference is amazing, I'm using that :biggrin:
There is actually a good torrent I posted in the premium section that is a leaked copy of Windows 8.1 Pro with a cd key.
