1. Make sure you have the Vista product key should be on a sticker on the machine.

2. Make sure you have all the drivers.

3. back up any data you require

4. Use a Vista DVD to format the partitions where windows is located. and do a clean install of Vista

Although why you would want to go back to Vista as & is much better? Unless the windows 7 is an illegal copy?

I work in a charity shop and the laptop was donated to us but has personal information on, so i wanted to wipe it clean and yes it does state that it is an illegal copy thats why we have to remaster it before re sale, also no discs were provided, is there a way around this? thanks for your help so far.
