Hi,

            

HP do not provide a download option, but you can order a replacement set of Recovery Discs for Vista using the link below.

 

Order HP Recovery Discs.

 

If you have any problem with this link, order them directly from HP.

 

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.

 

If you are in another part of the world, start Here.



Regards,

 

DP-K

Hi:

 

If you are specifically looking for a plain Vista installation disk, you can make your own Vista installation disk if you can read your product key.

 

If you can read your 25 character MS product key, you can make your own Windows Vista installation disk. Just download the 3 files you need at the link below, and read all of the instructions to create a bootable DVD installation disk using imageburn.

 

When I went to compile the ISO file, ImageBurn gave a message that about a WIM file and ISO, and if I wanted to burn it in a different format.

 

I selected No, make the ISO file.

 

It was not that hard to do. I burned both the 64 bit disk and the 32 bit disk in case I ever need them.

 

I tested both of them (just short of going ahead with the actual install) and they appeared to work perfectly.

 

Apparently when you enter the product key, it knows what version of Vista you have.

After you successfully install vista, you can download the drivers you need from your PC's support and driver page.

Paul --

 

I'm trying to follow your instructions here.  Was able to download the three files but clicking on the Install file will not allow me to extract.  There should be no reason for that as there is plenty of room on the drive.

 

Any more suggestions?

 

Thanks.

Hi:

 

I revised my instructions with some more notes.

 

That was one of my earlier posts.

 

Please re-read and re-try.

 

If you're up to a slight but rewarding challenge you can make your own if you can read your 25 character Vista product key on the PC.

 

Just download the 3 files you need at the link below, and read all of the instructions to create a bootable DVD installation disk using imageburn.

 

Disregard the part of the text under the first screen shot about "extract the files to the Vista folder."

The files were already extracted to that folder when you ran the X14.exe file by reading the text on top of the first screen shot.

 

The other thing I noticed is on the 4th screen shot, where it shows Developer ID Microsoft Corporation. I had to type Microsoft Corporation in myself, and then the other codes automatically populated.

 

When I went to compile the ISO file, ImageBurn gave a message that about a WIM file and ISO, and if I wanted to burn it in a different format.

 

I selected No, make the ISO file.

 

It was not that hard to do. I burned both the 64 bit disk and the 32 bit disk in case I ever need them.

 

I tested both of them on my hp dc7100 CMT desktop PC, they worked perfectly.

 

When you enter the product key, it knows what version of Vista you have.
