Download copy of Windows Vista

Need to download a copy of Vista for my laptop as everything seems to have gone corrupt, and I can't find the recovery discs for my laptop

Before anyone says anything I do have a valid product key so not doing anything illegal

Have you not got a friend or neighbor who can lend you one.
It will work Ok as long as you have your own keycode.

All depends how old the laptop is but some have a recovery on them by pressing either F10 or F11 at start up.
It will then set it back to its original state.

Well asking work friends etc was next port of call

I do not know if this will solve your problem as this is a trial version, but as you have a licence, it should give you the option to enter it to make a full version
