Solved vista dvd scratched


Hello . I bought some computer parts several years ago and bought vistahome premium64 dvd builders, service pack one. the dvd no longer works because of light scratching, so I am using unbuntu. The company I bought the dvd from recomended that since I own the licence it could be down loaded with a torrent from pirate bay .
Is that really ok to do that? What do you recommend id like to find a solution without having to buy a new os.

Since you do have a key, we can help. That being said, to download from Prirate Bay would be very foolish and may contain OS that have been altered to no longer being legit. In addition, you will most likely download more than an OS and have even bigger problems.
May I suggest, that you read the posts contained in the link below. After you understand that due to the generosity of one of our members, you can leave your email address and you will be emailed a clean, safe copy of Vista.
