full installation of Windows vista files

Respected Sir/Madam,

I have problem in bought and installed windows vista operating system, so I need an extra copy of already purchased the operating system windows vista, for the complete installation file containing the package.

How to get Vista recovery Media and/or to use the Vista recovery Partition on your computer.

There is no Vista free download legal available.

Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

You can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

They will tell you how to do this.

Every computer manufacturer has their way of doing recovery disk/s.

Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Second installation was successful, but the installation failed initial always appears at startup upward. At a complete loss to know where to find entries that say my system there are 2 installs of Windows Vista. When launched the CD to 'view' where this "alternate" install is shows unknown HDD to address 0 w a lack of disk space. Of course, it is more than likely that only some files in the registry or the system "ask" that there is a current installation. Where can I find these to remove them?

  • trying to do a clean installation of windows vista by using the dvd

    I am trying to simply destroy my computer and start clean using the reinstall DVD supplied with my dell PC. It has windows Vista Home Basic on it. When I put the DVD in its loading and a window pops up asking if I want to install and I press Yes. After a while a box appears that says I don't have enough storage for temporary files. He needs so many megabytes of free space on a partition to be able to load the disc. the problem is that I have NOTHING on the computer, there should be more sufficient storage space! How can I get the DVD to run?


    If there is no data on the computer, then you can try to format the hard drive and then install vista on it.

  • Runnning BACK full screen in Windows Vista

    I try to open and read some of my old school games, but I am unable to get the screen BACK to run full-screen mode.  I have no idea what to do from here.  I think I'm under the 32-bit version of Vista.


    Welcome to Microsoft Windows 7 answers Forum!

    The problem occurs because the Windows device drivers support all video modes BACK running. Windows device drivers are based on the Mode operating system display driver. You must contact the manufacturer of the driver or display adapter to get help.

    I am wanting to perform a clean installation of Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit.  I would like to install Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit.  I was told, during the custom Setup, that I could choose which bit to install.


    With Vista, you do not boot from an external drive to install it.

    It is an option in Windows 7.

    And they told you to contact Microsoft for support.

    Microsoft does not provide support for OEM installations.

  • Keyboard output incorrect characters after the re-installation of Windows Vista on Dell XPS M1530

    Original title: some of the keys on the keyboard messed up after re-installation of Windows Vista on Dell XPS M1530

    Hey guys,.

    I have recently reinstalled windows because last year I picked up a few errors that I couldn't fix it easily and I wanted a clean slate.

    I have install all the drivers etc, but I noticed on my keyboard, if I try and make a "sign it comes up with a sign @ and vice versa." There are also others like that, so I guess that my keyboard readers need to update? Although I have no idea why they would need updating as they were before.

    Anyway, I went here: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=XPS_M1530&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid= and I tried to find the driver I need, but could not find them.

    So, overall, my question is should I update the drivers? If so, how?

    And if not, how can I fix?

    Thank you. :)

    How do you reinstall Vista, what steps did you take?

    What is a wireless keyboard?

    If this is the case, check the batteries and make sure that the keyboard is very close to the receiver (a few inches) to see if the problem resolves.

    I suggest updating your anti-virus definitions and run a fun system scan.

    You can connect another keyboard to your computer to see if it might be the fault of the keyboard?

    The issue here is not one of which version of Windows you are using.
    It is one of what you have installed applications.

  • SFC scan reports sidebar.ini and source file as a corrupted file even after the installation of WIndows Vista repair.

    Hey, I'm Ryan.
    I am running windows vista 32 bit and I get 2 files corrupted when I run SFC - they relate to the windows sidebar (sidebar.ini and store source file is also corrupted). I did a repair installation, and this always happens when I run the SFC.

    1 - is this going to cause any problems to my laptop if I leave it alone?
    2 could it be related to a virus?
    I'm sorry for the questions, but I'm confused as to how this happened... Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you very much.

    1 NO.

    2 NO.

    This SFC message could be caused by the manufacturer of the computer adding gadgets to the sidebar before installation of Windows for you, or some other change to the sidebar gadgets



  • The installer for Windows Vista is wrong...

    I was recently given an old "Lenovo Thinkpad SL500' with a failing HARD drive.  On the Palm of the laptop is Windows label that reads "Windows Vista Basic". I put in a disc of Windows Vista (x 86 version) and windows load, and to enter the serial number, it starts to install "Windows Vista Business" (perhaps the original owner updated the version of windows). At the end of installation, I go to activate and I like that it's the wrong version of windows for the serial number, hmmm... !  Think it should have been the version 64-bit (x 64), I perform the re - install, once again tell them he set up "Windows Vista Business" (64-bit version). Still, I get the same error message when you try to activate.

    Time to cheat, I re - install again, but don't get me the serial number, which then gives the option to select the version of vista to install, this time I select Vista Basic (32-bit and 64-bit later). Windows installed twice and both times it fails to activate, this time with the error "Enter a different product for activation key", and Yes, I type in the serial number from the label (which windows it is was brought off the coast of the COA), still with no success.

    Is it possible to say that Windows belongs to my serial number, or is it possible that the previous owner upgraded to a version of Windows 7 and changed the COA. ??

    Vista OEM integrators of systems and DVD retail are the same both contain the files for the editions of Vista that you mentioned, and that is the PK that determines which edition is installed.

    Unfortunately, there is no list to check a PK hand to see which edition it corresponds to the.

    Lenovo are those who need to check with as to what is preinstalled on it.

    Here is their information on it:


    'Detailed features - ThinkPad SL400, SL400c, SL500, SL500c'

    Operating system
    • Windows XP Professional
    • Windows Vista Starter Edition (32-bit)

    Thank you


    You will need to contact Fujitsu about this.

    You cannot change languages with Vista Ultimate and Enterprise.

    You can have a different result if you try reinstalling using this method.

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

  • The upgrade of my hardware invalidate my installation of Windows Vista? How can I solve this problem?

    I recently started to get the message "this copy of Windows is not genuine", which is a little disconcerting for me. I have recently (April 20, to be exact) installed Service Pack 2 and I also recently installed new hardware, but everything worked without problem until today. Let me include some details on my system, and also what items of equipment have been replaced:

    OS: Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
    Recently replaced hardware: motherboard, RAM, processor, power supply, chassis

    As stated, things were aired as easily as they always until today, when I noticed that my office is transformed to a solid black color instead of the wallpaper I had already. Then I noticed an icon in the system tray indicating that I could click it to activate my copy of Windows; When you click on it, I gives me the message "the product key of Windows Vista Edition Family Premium you typed is invalid for activation."  I've been running this copy of Windows for four and a half, and it has been installed on the PC that I bought directly from Dell, so I know that it is a legitimate copy. As my Dell OEM chassis has been replaced by a generic box (the new motherboard did fit properly into the exclusive Dell chassis), I do not have the sticker with the information of Windows, so I can't post it. I'll post the MGA information below; any additional necessary information is available, but I don't know what else could be required to post.

    Well, it's a disappointment. If this is the case, it would be possible to purchase a license upgrade to Windows 7, or should I get a full version? I prefer to get the version if possible upgrade from $80 it's cheaper. Cancellation of my driver's license means that it is no longer an option?

    "I suggest you buy a Windows 7 license, that Vista is no longer sold."

    As I recommended you it to my 1st answer you need to buy a Windows 7 license.

    And the reason is that you now don't have a Windows license to upgrade qualification, as your Vista license is void for the reasons I have already explained to you in my previous to this topic answers...

    And before you buy a license of Windows 7, follow these steps to check if your hardware and software is Compatible Windows 7.

    Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.

    If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.

    Run the "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.


    Check if your specifications are compatible for Windows 7:

    "Windows 7 Compatibility Center" for software and hardware:

  • Re-installation of Windows Vista error

    I'm doing a clean re install of Vista on my computer. After booting from the installation CD, everything goes well until what happens to a point where it says "finish installation" (I get green check marks next to "copy of windows files, expansion of files, installation of the features and install updates").  Once it gets to the point "finish installation", it just gets stuck.  Finally, all I get is a blank screen with a cursor.  I tried this several times with the same result.

    The computer will not start, even in safe mode (probably because that it doesn't have a full OS on it more).

    Thank you!

    If you use the manufacturer's recovery disk, contact the manufacturer of the computer.
