    Upgrade from Vista to Win8?

    Dumb flash install question

    For Windows the USB thingy will work. For the Office you just have to copy the files or download from MS. Give MS a call I believe the office team can assist you in download the installation files for Office.

    The main problem here is that Netlix requires Micrsoft's Silverlight to be installed and I do believe that you need a Windows computer to install SL. About keeping Vista, you could try using the same Windows Vista disk and the activate online, if it fails, try the automated phone system. If...
