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.

Anybody home,,,, I am dieing here? virus removal..... want to wipe out All apps/programs and reload Vista.


Hi,
Do you have recovery CD's that should have come with the PC/Laptop?
If so you will need to use them, if you don't have them you'll need a (legal) copy of Vista to use.

Thecrow_3@hotmail.comis there a difference between vista ultimate and vista home edition as I did find the code but it didn't work


Yes. Vista Home Edition has less features than Ultimate. Also, it will not run on a different code- nor will Microsoft provide you with one if you have the other

I went from XP Home Edition to Vista Ultimate.


You need to go to the Toshiba website for your location at this location: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp# and select "Download" then type "M45-S331" into the search box. I would suggest you download all the drivers for Vista and install them. Good fortune to you.

Legally no. Micorsoft states that every Windows machine must have it's own operating system licensed to it.
