hi..

talking abt re-formatting PC.. i bought a desktop PC from a friend whch he installed Vista Ultimate Ori for me. now a year later, my PC got infected with virus and i got him to back up the files and re-format for me. my friend tells me tht i would need to pay for Vista Ultimate license again.

I am not much of an IT savvy person so can u let me know if this is true ? tht everytime i reformat my PC, i will need to pay for the OS license ?

hope u can shed some light on this matter.

TQ.

if he did not give you the disk and the key when you bought it

then you will need to buy it,

if the purchase was supposed to include these,ask him to pay for it
