Is the "i have a full copy of vista " the origional disc that came with the computer/ Does it say OEM on the disk?
If so, sometimes it is a one time use.
Why the clean install?
Let me know asap.
Thanks

( Windows vista) I purchased one second hand. I have no disk. And waz wondering if there is anyway I can totally wipe it. So it is the way it would of been wen origannally purchased. Please help thanks...


If there is no disc then you can restore it back to factory settings or close to it but that is only if it has been backed up. Click start, accessories, system tools, then system restore. Follow the directions.

My laptop E625-201G16Mi has windows Vista home basic, which is pre-installed so no disc. I need to wipe it and re-boot it, how can I do this?


One way to wipe out your computer is by Getting a Vista Disk or Operating system of your choice. It has to be a full installation disk. Try WIndows 7!!! I use it its great..When you install a new OS(operating System) it gives you the option to reformat your disk drive which in turn wipe out all your data and give your computer a fresh clean install..first things first..get a Valid Copy of Windows of your choice. I recommend WIndows 7 Professional.

I'm trying to upgrade from 64-bit Vista to 64 bit Windows 7. When I run the installation disk, I'm getting the following error message, which appears to be contradictory in my opinion:...


I have seen this type of problem before, the only real way around it is to install a fresh copy of windows 7 not to upgrade, you will receive a message that asks you if you want to keep the previous windows in a folder called old windows, from there you will be able to access all your old files and programs, be aware though some programs may not work on windows 7, and you may need to have updated drivers for the systems peripherals. So when you run the windows 7 disk choose clean install and go from there. i hope this helps

Vista home edition


Unfortunatly Toshiba do not provide an operating system disc with their machines it's just the recover disc which is designed to restore factory settings. I have tried but failed to get just the O/S to install. In theroy you should be able to get a copy of Vista from Toshiba as you correctly stated you have payed for it. While your looking at doing a clean install I would recommend download the free windows 7 RC from microsofts website. It's so much better than vista.

Recovery disk wont work because of preinst4.swm


you probably need a functioning Windows Operating system to copy the disk.
If you havent had it for too long, you could try sending it back to have the O/S and other original software reinstalled.

Cd/dvd drivers missing on vista 32 install


The best way to find out if you need SATA or IDE is to open the case and look. If you have gray cables about one-inch wide with a red line on one side then that is IDE. They are parallel cables. If you have anything else then it is SATA which is a serial cable. I have never been to the Acer Website but I know on Dell, HP, etc. they have a place under support and drivers that you can go. Type in your model number and download the drivers. I don't know if you have another computer to do it, but unfortunately if your restore disk do not work then that is where you will have to go...also see if you can contact someone at Acer and find out why your restore disk do not work. I have wiped my hard drive clean and I was still able to re-install the revovery disk.....Hope this helps.
