Handy tip for Vista virtual machines

If you regularly build virtual machines for testing – and delete them within 30-days of creation – then there is something you should know about installing Vista.  You can skip the option of entering a serial number – and you will just get a 30 day trial installation.

Now you no longer need to memorize your serial number so you can type it in each time 🙂

Obviously if you intend to use the virtual machine for longer then 30 days, you are going to need to provide a serial number and activate the installation.

Cheers,
Ben
