A trick I found out the other day was, during an install of Windows Vista, when it asks you to enter a product key, you can launch a cmd prompt by pressing SHIFT+F10. From there you can access some pretty useful tools, a list of which is located here (http://geekswithblogs.net/lorint/archive/2006/11/22/97794.aspx)

You can do the same thing with Windows 2008. :)
