Reinstalling Vista
hello all, i'm sure this question has been asked before but i really couldn't find it. I bought a Toshiba notebook a coupla years ago with Vista Home Premium installed. i've never formatted it but thought i might finally do it now. i used to format my desktop computer about once every few months with Windows XP so im not stranger to formatting and reinstalling the OS but i just realised that when i bought the notebook, it didn't actually come with a Vista disc. So how do i get my hands on one without paying for another one? i do have a legit product key so all i need is a disc. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Reinstalling Vista
Your laptop did not have a system restore option did it? You can use that to install Vista again, however it will install all the bloatware and junk again. Just get rid of it and it would be like a new install of Vista. If you need a disc you can use any Vista Home Premium disc as long as you have a valid CD key that is your own.
