This is a repair disk and has know way anything to do with microsoft,the disk will re-install or repair your system from hidden partitions on your hard drive using my own sofware with my 18 years experience in computing"
That disc will not work for the reasons lotvic has outlined. You will need to buy a disc for the full operating system and, if you want to use your existing COA code, it will have to be exactly the same version of Windows that was originally installed. If not, you won't be able to activate.
If Digital River haven't taken Vista off yet, you can download and burn your own Vista DVD (Digital River are Microsoft's official download site) The links and instructions are on: Heidoc webpage for Vista Download Links
