If you run the recovery CD you do have, when it reinstalls the operating system, it should also reformat the hard drive first, and give you a completely clean install.

are you trying to install a different version of windows? are you running the recovery software from the HP CD, or from the local hard drive?

also, when you run the recovery software, does it give you an option for what kind of recovery to run? Be certain to select the most thorough option listed.

I need activation key for vista home premium can anyone help pls


There are several software solutions which can redeem your Operating System serial key. You are using Windows Vista HP as the OS, so using these softwares would lead you to the Product key of Vista and other softwares that are installed onto your computer.

To download the best software (according to me) in Zip format, click on the following link: http://www.magicaljellybean.com/downloads/keyfinder.zip

After downloading this file, unzip it with WinRar or other other similar programs. Now you will find two files in it, Keyfinder.cfg and Keyfinder.exe. Double-click on keyfinder.exe, and this should open up a new window with your OS information and serial key.

For your convenience, I've attached a screenshot below:

If the above program didn't help you, you may try using other programs also. For other programs, go to this link: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/productkeysactivation/tp/topkeyfinder.htm


Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

I have an Advent PC running Vista Home Premium,made a recovery disk (which I've lost),and want to completely format the whole system back to the way it was when I bought it. Read somewhere to use...


My advice is that you really do not want a Windows Vista PC at all! Are you trying to get it back to how it was when it was new because it's become so slow that you can't use it? Yep, been there.
The best solution is to go to ubuntu.com website and find out how easy it is to upgrade to the Ubuntu free open-source OS. It will run your computer MUCH better than vista ever could. I have change several windows PC to Ubuntu and they are now much faster, and they don't slow down over time like all windows PCs do.
Trust me, you'll never look back.
PS Choose Ubuntu 10.04 version. It has the best free support.

My hp laptop with windows vista home premium is not booting and showing to insert bootable disk, which I don't have.how i can get this


The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.

Don't worry. The installation DVD will take care of it.
As soon as you finish reinstalling everything, look into a product called Pc Laptop Guard.
You won't have to format again ever.

I have oem vista home premium and need to format


most computer makers put the restore on a partition of the hard drive that is accessed using an F-key on bootup. You should see f-key options displayed (very quickly) on booting up and one will be "restore". For example, on an HP machine, it'll be F11 you hit on boot up to go into the restore partiton.

To make recovery partition for vista


If that's a brand new model damroo, the recovery cd should be a software that you can click on the desktop, it should say something like HP PC System Recovery or something similar. For a complete guide, try checking this out. It should be similar in making recovery cd on XP/Vista.

Hope this helps.
