    Download the recovery disc - gives you the system recovery options. ( get the same bit version , 32 or 64 as you currently have installed )

    torrent:

    Windows Vista Recovery Disc Download — The NeoSmart Files


    direct d/l:

    ( might be in be in German - select your language at the first screen that pops up where you select Language and keyboard) )

    Vista Recovery-CD Downloads Systemtools - Go Windows Vista - Forum News Hilfe Board-

    When it has found the installed o/s , click Next

    Click the command prompt, type notepad, press enter.

    Notepad pops up - click File then click Save.

    Navigate to the drive - rt click it , select Properties.

    Untick Compress this Drive, Apply, OK.
