It's a long story.... maybe later if anyone is interested.
I have an image (several copies) created from within Vista backup and restore. These contain all my files (and programs). The O/S is inconsequential, except for maybe the key.
I do not appear to have the original disk used to install.
Every version of Vista or Win7 I have used to attempt to restore the image tells me that the images are not compatible with those versions.
How do I tell what version of Windows Vista was used to create the image?
