Im not pirating its built into vista that you just type in the pommand prompt a code and they give you an extra 30 days evaluation wich you can do once then if its worth it Ill buy one

The reinstallation disks from Dell are only legal on the dell machine. It is not legal to install on the Mac, and the re-installatio disks don't work anyway; you need a full install disk. It is against forum rules to help with piracy.
