To activate your copy of Windows Vista immediately following installation, you'll need an active and properly configured Internet connection. If you are not yet connected to the Internet, you may activate later, or use the toll-free number provided in the wizard to contact Microsoft and register over the phone. If you do not activate your copy, it will expire in 30 days, locking you out of Vista until you register or reinstall. Before you install Windows Vista you should make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements. You may run an upgrade adviser to scan your system prior to installing Windows Vista, allowing you to view whether that PC is able to run Windows Vista. Although rare, installing a new operating system could result in losing all previous data. Please back up all data you wish to keep prior to this installation.
