    Before doing anything make sure that you have a valid product key number. It should be on your computer

    Yes I have the product key stuck to the bottom of my computer, I just stupidly formatted the recovery partition, forgetting I didn't have a Vista Disc.

    Thanks for the link!

    Edit: Is that not just a link to Service Pack 2 for Vista, rather than the whole OS?

    Re: Vista ISO download


    hi all, would it be possible to get a link to where i can get a windows iso to re-install vista on my laptop. i have the sticker at the bottom of the laptop, i was also wondering if this meant that i can only use the license code for home basic or can i use it for home premium or ultimate?

    cheers guys

    The product key on the sticker is only good for the same edition you already have installed - I assume that is Home Basic.

    The only Vista ISO files still hosted are for Ultimate versions, so you'll have to modify the ISO to allow Home Premium to be installed. It isn't anything dangerous An ISO image contains all of the files required for any installation, be it Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate, but each disc contains a file, ei.cfg, which states which version is to be installed. If you remove this file, then you get to choose which version to install when you install Windows. Please bear in mind that your product key is version specific, so installing Ultimate won't work for you.

    Download and run this, then browse to the ISO and it will remove the file for you

    All Vista disks will install all editions without any mods, as far as I know?? (certainly the case for RTM - can't claim direct knowledge of later ones)
    It's Win7 where you have to tweak the ISO to install different editions.

    Thanks Noel It's been such a long time since I last installed Vista, I just assumed it would be the same as Windows 7.

    Re: Vista ISO download


    i have a question here, i have an acer aspire (piece of crap) 5515 notebook. it came with vista home basic, i purchased an upgrade DVD of home premium, well thanks to acer i couldnt upgrade. files were missing for the upgrade. i look to buy a full version of vista but by that time they were taken off the shelf, so i opted for win7 and did a clean install. im wanting to sell my notebook but keep my win7, can i download the ISO burn it to a DVD and then reboot to vista. i have product key from the upgrade dvd's.
