    All the retail Vista CDs are bootable and have all the repair tools
    available so there is no need for boot disks.

    Or were you meaning these:

    No, you order the CD/DVD.

    If you state why you want boot disks, perhaps someone can give you a
    solution.

    Well, I wondered because you are able to download boot disks for previous
    versions.

    IIRC, the boot CDs for Windows XP were not available for several months
    after the public release of Windows XP.
    If they are coming for Vista, they may still be weeks or months away.

    What do you mean by "boot CD"?
    The Windows install CD has been bootable for many years already.

    Re: Vista Boot disks

    That should have been "boot floppies" since they are to be made on floppies.

    Not only many years, retail Windows XP CDs have been bootable since release.
