Buy the OEM version, it will not cost to much. One thing to note about
an OEM is that you will not be able to upgrade any major hardware after
installation.

Hi,

1) You can't, there's no manner of doing that provided for by anyone
anywhere. HP and other manufacturers bind Vista not only with programs they
want to supply, but also with proprietary drivers to support the hardware
their systems are built with. Their image may not contain all of the files
contained in a generic OEM or retail version of Vista.

2) Your license for the use of Windows Vista is locked to the HP machine it
came with and you cannot use it to install to another machine. So even if
you could create the install image, you wouldn't be able to use it.
