Is there any kind of protection, activation, registration malarkey that will stop me installing vista premium oem on a second pc?

I've been given a 2nd pc, but it has xp on it - i would prefer to put vista on it - just wondering if its going to lock me out after 30 days or something if i try to install the vista i currently have installed on machine number one

thanks

It will install, but you will have activation problems as it's an OEM disc that "dies" with the machine it came with.

If you want Vista on this other machine then you will have to buy a retail upgrade. There is no other way.

buy a vista OEM and do a clean install.
