It is allowed or not the upgrade from XP OEM edition, using the Vista
upgrade edition according to the following EULA? Reverse one the other?
According to the EULA of Vista I can upgrade and I can surely tranfer to
another computer, provided that their EULA replaces this of the OEM
software. In this case (major harware upgade, catastrophic failure, etc)
how I can install the eligible for the upgrade version (XP OEM) so I can
reinstall the Vista upgrade version?

You may freely upgrade the XP OEM to Vista. As long as you are using a
retail copy of Vista you may move it later. However if Vista is an upgrade
edition you will need another copy of XP or W2k on the new computer because
you cannot move the OEM copy of XP from the old one.
