 PostPost subject: Vista on CD..        Posted: Tue Feb 20, 2007 1:04 am

I posted a link on another forum to a page at Microsoft where you could
order Vista on CD's, figured I'd post it here too as others may be
interested in knowing how & where you can order it from..

The ordering page

Seems the page is for those who already on it on DVD though I can't
see why you couldn't order it as a new purchase one way or another, surely..

The German Vista Business CDs look like this, they are blue and not grey like the English.

I have the Business version... downloaded with MSDNAA...
Do you know if it is possible to order the DVDs (not CDs but DVDs) ?

If you go to the link at the top of this topic and put in your product key, they'll tell you what discs are available to you. When I put in my Business key they only offered me CDs or a 64-bit DVD, but then it came with a 32-bit DVD in the box, so they maybe know from the key that I already have one of those.

@Vista Ultimate R2 :
When you taped in you Business serial number, they offered you the CDs or DVD 64bits... it's the same with me.
But you say that, when you received the box, there were CDs and DVD 32 bits ?

The Business boxed version comes only with a 32-bit DVD. The other options (on the website) are a 64-bit DVD or 32-bit CDs, but you have to order those separately from the website.

Yeah there's already a plethora of warez sights hosting Vista Lite builds
that fit on cd/r's, from home basic to ultimate.
