Need a new hard drive but have no windows vista disk


You don't.
Do you have backup software? If so, do a "disk and partition" backup. This essentially creates an image of your system, even if you have multiple hard disks. Decent backup software (I won't mention any brands except the one I use: Acronis) will allow for a boot time recovery of your entire system, either by inserting a post-bios command -- which will appear on your screen before windows startup with a message like "Press F12 for system recovery", or you should press whatever key your system allows for boot order and boot from the recovery disk you can create from the software.
You can even now immediately create a Windows backup to an appropriately sized USB mounted disk (even the terabyte ones are relatively cheap) and a Windows Recovery Disk...the recovery disk should be inserted and use boot order F-key...good luck

I have a corrupted windows vista system and I bought a windows 7 install cd, but need to learn how to properly install it. I have a HP pavillion Elite m9350f PC.


Go into your bios settings set the cd rom as first boot device save and exit. Computer will reboot place the new windows disk into your cd player if you are on time it will catch the new disk and tell you that thee is a bootable disk in th cd rom, do you wish to boot this disk. If you miss it just place the cd into the disk player and reboot the system again. Once you have selected yes for the cd rom follow the prompts on the cd and you will be on your way to even more frustration with windows. Hope this helps.

Can u help 2 format the laptop


Before you do begin to format you laptop, backup first all the data files in your laptop. Second, provide the Operating System  you want to install in your laptop. Either Windows Vista or Windows XP. Both windows you can partition the HDD their before install begin. Make sure to set the first boot device to CD/DVR ROM in CMOS setup so it will boot the OS CD/DVD you inserted in the ROM. Good luck!

I have anhp vectra type x86 family pc.with windows2000 professional software. my sister gave it to me and want set it back to it's original factory default set up. When I tried to use the operating system...


Your backup disk is just that, it is used as a boot disk to get your computer to re boot and start windows. It is not intended to reload windows on your computer, you have to get the windows installation disk and install that. Actually you can load any windows from 95 to Vista, if your computer can handle it. You can insert any windows disk and load that on your computer to get it to operate, then just upgrade to the windows you want. Good Luck.

Reset my acer aspire 6920 to factory settings


This is a tried and tested way to recover it takes quite long but here goes: (remember to backup all your documents first)

First you will need your Windows Vista Home Premium licence key the easiest way is to boot to safe mode using F8 then use a U3 stick USB drive with this U3 WinkeyFinder installed to find and save your Genuine Licence and also backup your Windows Activation file you will need this for later.

1.Install your Windows Vista Home SP1 operating system using the normal method with your install CD use you Genuine Key found using WinKey. Then restore you activation file using Winkey on the U3 drive.

2. Dowload the Windows Vista SP2 Patch CD from the Windows Website.

3. Reload all you drivers using this excellent Aspire 6920 recovery CD from WinGuides. It will cost you £10.

All done. if you dont have a Windows Vista SP1 Install CD then you will also have to download one which you can do legally as you already have a Genuine Licence if not check using this MGA Tool

Hope this helps please rate !
