How to reset DELL machine from Vista Business to Enterprise upgrade

Dell D630 Vista upgrade issue
 
I want to share with you guys
I recently brought Dell D630, which comes with Windows Vista – Business edition
I’ve Windows vista Enterprise license, and would like to upgrade this to Enterprise
There are no way the system will allow the upgrade..it always comes to the blue screen
Even if you try on the safe mode, it won’t go

the solution which works with me is that
when it boots, Press F2, this will take you to the BIOS settings, there you press ALT+F
This will prompt you for SATA changes..press save changes and press ESC and then say YES.

This works fine and now i’m using Vista Enterprise, without any issue (cross the finger)
Anyone who experience this issue, can try out

How to log on to Windows Server 2003 as admin after disabling the admin account

Windows Server 2003 allows you disable the the local Administrator account to provide an additional level of security. It even defaults to disabling the local Administrator on the destination computer of a RIS (Remote Installation Services) install.

To log on as the local Administrator after you disable that account:

01. Restart your server.

02. After the POST (Power On Self Test), press F8.

03. On the Advanced Options menu, use the ARROW keys to select Safe Mode and press Enter.

04. Select the operating system that you want to start and then press Enter.

05. Log on as Administrator. If prompted, select an item in the Why did the computer shut down unexpectedly list and press OK.

06. Right-click My Computer and press Manage.

07. Expand Local Users and Groups.

08. Select Users.

09. Right-click Administrator in the right-hand pane and press Properties.

10. Clear the Account is disabled box and press OK.

11. Restart your server and log on normally as Administrator.

NOTE: You can also log on to the Recovery Console while the Administrator account is disabled.

How do you change the installation key without reinstalling Office?

It happens more often than you might think: you have two Office licenses and install the wrong one on a computer. If you activate it, Microsoft will think you moved it to a new computer and it can create problems later on.

How do you change the installation key without reinstalling Office?

 Close all Office applications that are open. Open the registry editor (Start menu, Run, type regedit) Find the following registry key and locate the correct key for the application that needs a new installation key (“CD key”). HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Registration The Office suite and any applications you installed individually will each have a registry key, identified by a GUID which resembles this one: {90110409-6000-11D3-8CFE-0150048383C9} Look at the data values for the application name, then delete the two ProductID keys – (DigitalProductID and ProductID). Open the application (any of the Office applications if you changed the suite key) and enter the correct CD key.

 If you already activated Office, you’ll need to reactivate it using the correct key. If you have more than one Office license, after activating the correct copy on the correct computer, save the activation files and export the Registration registry key. When you reinstall Office, you can use any of your licenses to install it then restore the activation and run the exported *.reg file to restore the correct licensing information on that computer.

Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage

I had a chance to take a look at the new V12 Vantage features a 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque with a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) and 0-62 mph (0-100 kp/h) time of 4.2 seconds. The latest incarnation of the Vantage family has been designed to provide a unique character, appealing to different driver tastes and complementing the other models in the current Aston Martin line-up.
