    My love affair with Vista has come to a end after 2 days and I figure I will sell it and take the money and buy so mac stuff. I listed it on ebay but my post was pulled down because the version I bought is a OEM version. Even thought I had not registered it or activated it. Any one have some suggestions where I can sell it.

    You do realize that an OEM version means you can only use it for your own hardware once you activate it right? Anything beyond that(even if you sold it) it prohibited. It is a one machine install only. It logs your computer specs to the Windows registration servers, and if someone else comes and tries to install it on a different machine it wont register...

    How did you have a love affair without activating Vista?

    And ebay is likely not going to allow you to sell an OEM copy of Windows, since there is absolutely no way to know if it's activated or not. And the buyer has no way of knowing whether you activated it or not as well.

    You do not havr to activate windows when you install t. You have 3 days. My fling was over after 2 day's. I guess "I'm a mac" not a PC.
    So it's a copy that someone else can install and activate.
