1. Am I correct in thinking I don't actually need to back up anything on my laptop before I do the install? I will back up just in case but just asking as I'm too geeky to not know the answer.
2. Can I transfer my Vista license to my husband's laptop (it's around 7 years old, Toshiba Satellite) it's running XP at the moment)? If so,I presume I'm going to need a key - where can I find this? My laptop didn't come with installation disks, I had to make up my own boot disks.
I'm aware I'll probably need to upgrade the memory on the older Toshiba, although I'm wondering whether it would be better to keep it running XP. He uses it for astronomy so runs quite a few programs on it, he rarely uses it online, only to download drivers etc.
The Linux is on my netbook by the way, not running anything other than Vista on my main laptop.
