Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
I have previously installed Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium edition on my notebook, by the manufacturer.
I want to format the system volume and install a fresh copy of OS
How can I retrieve installed OS as a set of setup files on a dvd, so that I can use that dvd as a installation disk ?
Is it possible to create a installation disk from a installed copy of OS on a hard drive ?
If not, is there any other way to install a fresh copy ?
eg. just copy-paste of windows files to/from a dvd on a formatted partition will do ?
Nop sorry you cant do that. Even if you could you would end up with the same operating system that you have now which i pressume is playing up and running slow?
Some manufacturers put a recovery partition with the install files on that. All you have to do is boot from it
If you go to the control panel then sysytems and maint and then admin tools then computer management then disk management you should be able to see if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive.
If you do then there will be an option in bios or during boot f12 maybe) to boot from it.
If not then you need to have a vista disk to install. The manfacturer should be able to provide one for you or reinstalll vista onto the hd for you.
hope that helps?

No you cannot create an instillation from an installed copy of vista, altough the necessary files are there the is a lot more to the instilliation process than what is on your harddrive.. what you ned to do is uinstall fresh of the windows vista instilliation disc. if you dont have the disc i hope you got your srial... or you can download one using a torrent client such as utorrent and from this web site as the torrent
