I have mistakenly installed Windows 7 on both desktop and laptop and the activation code only works for the desktop. I did a 'clean' install on the laptop and want to get back to Vista but cannot find out how to download the system. It came already installed and has been overwritten. I am a silver surfer and am totally stuck. Can anyone help please. I have spent a whole day trying to download from microsoft and have my product key for the original installation, but cannot find a download from microsoft.
Have a look on your laptop's documents that came with it. Hopefully when you installed Windows 7 you did not format the 'hidden partition'. There should be a way of getting in to this recovery partition to restore the laptop to 'factory settings'.
