Vista ISO download

HP typically did not supply recovery disks (no disk came with my HP Pavilion Elite m9150f), but users were advised to burn their own. HP systems typically included a Factory Image partition, which I used for my one and only Vista reinstall. It is hard to overstate the value of a fully updated image for backup purposes going forward, in light of 2019 SHA-2 Code Signing Support requirement for Windows and WSUS.

I've experienced this with my cousin's HP Pavilion dv6648se entertainment notebook pc which came with Vista Home Premium 32bit a decade ago where I had to create a set of recovery DVDs while in Windows.

Good thing I did cuz the original hard drive (a Western Digital WD2500BEVS 250gb drive) malfunctioned several years ago in early 2013 [it generated SMART errors during bootup - the HP bios told me to replace the HDD] and I had to replace it with a bigger & newer one and restored the Vista OS using the recovery discs.

note to siarik: the HP system recovery DVDs I have may or may not work with your model since my cousin's HP dv6648se laptop uses Intel Core 2 CPUs; need to know the specs of your HP computer

Hi there, it would be great if I could get hold of that .ISO as I need to re-install my Vista Home Basic x32 onto my laptop. This might just me me being slow, but I can't find any link to send you an email or a private message?

Thanks in advance,

Ross
As the thread is 7 years old the originator may no longer be accessible. I've sent you a Private Message (Envelope symbol at top right of your page when logged in) - it contains a download link to my Vista ISO's. Note the ISO includes SP2 and the ISO is also zipped so you will need to unzip it first.

Hi all, I am a new member who found the site looking for Vista OEM install software, I have 2 identical HP laptops with legal installs one is completely pooched and the other is salvageable that I bought with Vista for my son.
I have spent a few days of downloading and messing around with many files and processes with no luck. He messed it up by installing a bootleg copy of Win 7 and damaging the recovery drive. It's been sitting a while but I thought I would try to reinstall the original Vista copy to bring it to stock condition again. I sure could use a copy of something that I can use to format and reinstall Windows Vista Home Basic without buying a new copy. Then I can update as required, I have downloaded many files and all (or maybe the operator) have issues. I was hoping to install on a Bootable 32 GB USB if possible.

I can send you, by private message, either Vista x86 raw/no SP's ISO download link or a Vista with SP2 either x86 or x64 one. Which would you prefer? The latter would save a lot of updating. It's a download from my personal Cloud storage so I wont publish it here.
The product key would be the one you have been using.

Hate to be a bother, could you send it my way (64bit, sp2 is fine if possible)? Or to: casval at gmail dot com.

No problem, just emailed the link to you. The file is zipped so unzip it on your desktop first.

Hopefully this is the right place to ask, but I've been having trouble with installing Vista and was hoping an SP2 ISO would help.

Could you send me a 64-Bit Vista SP2 ISO by any chance to red2x4 at gmail dot com.

Thanks so much!

I've sent you a private message with the download links for both x86 and x64 ISO's.
Sorry for the odd spacing - it's a copy of an email.

Your key decides which version is applicable & you can obtain that from the sticker on the back of the machine or from the original owner and/or recovery disk if available.
We aren't allowed to provide any keys by law.
