Hi there! first of all.. i´m a noob, about a month ago my dad got a Dell Laptop with windows 7 64 bit, i took the cd (original, it came with the laptop) and installed on my computer, I was running Vista 32 bit, it all worked well but then Microsoft started sending my the notice that my windows seven is not original.. I think it is because it was first installed on mi dad´s laptop and already registered.. so I want to return to My old Vista home premium 32 bit OS but every time i try to install it it send my a notice of some files missing with the error code 0x080070017... so far I tried to boot from the CD/DVD also entering my boot system and changed my HDD configuration to ATA (I read in other post that it may help... but I find no difference) and i just don´t now what else to do, I´m assuming that it is all because of the registry!!!!!! can someone help me with this?
by the way sorry for the bad english!
My laptop is a DellStudio
Intel core 2 duo 2.00 GHZ
4 Gb RAM
Mobil intel 965 chipset family (video)
if you need more info let me know!! oplease im starting to get very desperate
