New Install Required
Hi all,

Hoping someone can help me out here.

I would like to reinstall Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit on my Dell Inspirion 530.

The unit is a couple of years old now and hardware wise it still fully meets my requirements. The unit was shipped with Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit pre-installed and I'm now encountering problems with windows updates so I would like to reinstall the operating system. I didn't make any start up discs when I got the unit and I've been told that due to the issues I'm encountering it would be unwise to make them now and this would just replicate the problems when it's reinstalled.

Can anyone advise where I can get a disc image of windows vista home basic 32bit so that I can do a fresh install on my computer. I'm reluctant to buy a new copy as I already have the license so no need to repurchase a license.

Any help greatly appreciated.
