Vista Recovery Disk

HP Recommended

I have a question. When the Window 7 is released and I install it. What if I do not like the Window 7 and want to get Vista back. My computer doesn't come with the actual Recovery Disk, it is at Drive D. How can I re-install Vista back if I don't like Window 7? 

 

Thanks in advance!

IF you don't erase the D drive where the recovery partition is, you should be ok. You should be able to re-install vista by that recovery partition. The other way is to make your own recovery disc. The D drive won't be erase when you install Windows 7.

You need to make your own Vista recovery disks before trying installing other OS.

Since you mention you still have Recovery partition untouch try solution in this thread
