I have a Toshiba laptop that came with Vista. It runs much better with Ubuntu and I never want to go back. I was so dead set that I removed the Vista partition. Now I need some applications that will not work on WinE:
- Target Coupons
- Skype with my webcam
I can always boycott target (and their site makes it very tempting), but the Jetson's feel of Skype is too tempting. My webcam works in Linux, just not Skype.
Anyway, I want to install Vista on VirtualBox instead having to dual boot for these tasks. I don't have a Vista disk, but I still have my product key. The disk given by Toshiba doesn't seem to let me do a full re-install. So, I have two issues:
- How can I get my hands on a Vista install disk?
- Will the Vista installer somehow recognize that it's VirtualBox (not a Toshiba) and block the install?
Thanks in advance.
