How I support windows vista on cd to reinstall it on my other computer that wont start up. He's wiped and there is no recovery disk.

? How I support windows vista on cd to reinstall it on my other computer that wont start up. He's wiped and there is no recovery disk.  It also has stickers with license numbers.



There is no download free and legal Internet for vista

Here are the different ways to reinstall vista

Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

they do it for a nominal cost of $

also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

you would normally press F8, F9, F10 or F11 or Alt + F10 or 0 to start to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

Ask them of the exact key sequence

or borrow a vista microsoft dvd; not a HP, Acer recovery disk etc

Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

they contain all versions of vista

This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • How to manage Windows Vista power management features

    Hi guys

    I searched a bit in the technical knowledge of the Toshiba and found a very interesting article on Windows Vista power management features.

    * [How to manage Windows Vista power management features |] *.

    The fact is that you will not find one tool of Toshiba Power Saver on Vista as on Windows XP laptops and the parameters energy saver is a bit hidden in Vista power saving settings.

    But you can also control some options as a method of cooling or power saving Mode.

    I think that it could be interesting for some people here in the forum!

    Greetings to all!

    Thanks JayJay.

  • Satellite A105-S4284 does support Windows Vista?

    Thank you

    If it s a laptop capable of vista then I see no reason why the laptop doesn't have to support Windows Vista.
    It of a fact that, this time no Vista drivers are available on the Toshiba page. (I put t found any)
    I guess we will be able to download the drivers in the next few weeks.

    PS: I installed the RC2 release of my camera and it works without any additional driver. Only the wifi card does not work, but I can live with them

  • I need help, find how to install Windows Vista on a HP Pavilion 6475z disk.

    I need help, find how to install Windows Vista on a HP Pavilion 6475z disk.   I had to replace the hard drive, so he has nothing about it and I added more ram, but I replace the cd player so it is not yet installed on the HP.   So I was wondering if I could put the installation disc in my laptop cd/dvd and connect computers by usb ports and install it this way and if not how can I?

    Thank you


    You are welcome

    If the CD/DVD drive in the works of PC Gateway, you can (at least temporarily) remove it and install it in the HP, you can run your recovery disc and reinstall Vista.  Once everything is running on the HP, you can always remove the CD/DVD drive and reinstall it in the gateway PC if you wish.

    Kind regards

  • How to uninstall windows vista or reformat the c drive

    How to uninstall windows vista or reformat the c drive?


    You do not uninstall Vista as such.

    Vista cannot uninstall itself by Vista, formatting the drive that is installed on. In other words it cannot remove itself.

    You install another operating system, removal of Vista during the installation process of the other operating system...

    You don't say exactly what you are trying to do.

    You can format a disk if it a second drive with the Dual Boot operating systems and leaves without data or the operating system on it at all.

    We need more information.

    See you soon.

  • Adding an SSD as a boot drive - how to install Windows Vista Start

    To speed up my new e9105z, I bought a new 80 GB Intel X - 25 M to reduce disk latency and complete the 640GO HARD drive came with my computer.

    Drive has been installed successfully, recognized by the PC and formatted with the Windows Vista Disk Manager tool.  When I use the BIOS tool to set the Intel SSD as my boot drive, it says that some files of startup is missing, and I come to on the HARD disk as the startup disk.

    Bottom line: how to install Windows Vista on the SSD and configure it to start?  Did I lose my classic HDD data in the process?

    Thank you


    millergd wrote:

    Here is where I am/measures taken.  HP of course makes this difficult process:

    (1) used the CD Creator to make a backup.  (Note that the CD - R does not work with the e9105z software.  Do only DVD-R).  (I tried the system HARD disk recovery image.  He simply reinstalled itself on the HARD disk.)

    (2) the value of Vista installed on the SSD via backup DVDs.  System starts beautifully with SSD.  Hooray! I was about to declare mission accomplished, then...

    (3) Reconnected my HDD SATA cable, she failed to be the startup disk.

    (4) I used disk management to reformat the HARD drive to erase its boot sector.  It is always default to the HARD disk, which is more a Vista on it.  Now, I must go into the BIOS and choose the Intel SSD as boot drive whenever I turn on manually.

    Any idea on what needs to be done to configure the BIOS to finally settle the SSD as my boot drive?  The backup system image is still on the old hard drive.  Could that be throwing?

    The SSD speed is great, but the 6 + hours spent on Vista reinstall, reinstall and reinstall throughout this trial and error process made a royal PITA to do.  It seems that HP didn't consider that whether by adding a second drive that is bootable.

    Thank you


    You should be able to select the startup disk in the BIOS.  Restoring image shouldn't be a factor.  If the BIOS settings do not work, I would swap the connectors between the readers.

    Good luck

  • Why Microsoft did remove the ability for Windows Vista to install on herself from one location other than being inside the BONE you want to fix it?

    No Option to install repair - SAD


    Why Microsoft removed the ability for Windows Vista to install on herself from one location other than being inside the BONE you want to repair.

    I recently had a problem where Vista Business 64-bit would only boot to a black screen with a mobile cursor - KSOD.   Who, in searching the Web I found is a fairly common problem with Vista.  I discovered that my only option was about to reinstall Vista CLEAN and all the other programs I had installed under it.  I can't believe that Microsoft released the 'repair installation option"similar to that of Windows XP, where you can hit the"R"key during installation and we left with nothing but the"System Restore"options and"Startup Repair ".  Neither of which has helped in my situation.  Since then, this was a dual system boot with XP Pro, then any restore point has been removed from the partition to Vista anytime, I started another recognized problem, by Microsoft, which Microsoft has made no significant effort to fix, in addition to recommending that you hide the partion Vista in XP - a whole of XP.  That beats a little the entire purpose of dual boot.

    As I tried to start in safe mode, it left me at the same point as a normal boot - black screen with a cursor.  I tried ctrl + alt + delete and nothing. Two Windows RE options did not help me.  This left me no option but to the completely reinstall Vista.   Why Microsoft did remove the ability for Windows Vista to install on herself from one location other than being inside the BONE you want to repair.. Please don't tell me that it is because Vista uses an image file instead of an installation as XP system.   I see no other reason for not allowing the upgrade of outside BONE in addition to Microsofts greed and paranoia that he can transform the operating system easier to install illegally.  I hope that some third party has actually changed the Vista installation routine to allow you to install Vista on itself, because as it is, it's really hard for me to even recommend Vista as the operating system or install any where else, if not the only recourse after loading OS, is to reinstall completely.

    Adobe, Autodesk, and almost all other software publishers... allow you to perform a "REPAIR" of their software installation, if something prevents you to load after installation.  Even MS Office has a routine repair.  Ms has an internal version of the Setup routine which allows outside the OS upgrade option that you want to "Upgrade" / repair? ".  If not, why?

    -Todd w.

    "Why Microsoft removed the ability for Windows Vista to install on herself from one location other than being inside the BONE you want to repair."

    «.. . After using XP's repair function, the operating system itself would become less stable and frankly not in a good state of repair. »

    As Todd, is the answer.

    "This response does not hold water as on one of my computers I've been running Windows XP for about four years now, after a repair install.

    Then, you were lucky.  Try to replace the system files on a computer that does not start even at a desk or safe mode usually will get a return to office, but will probably repeat the same problem in a few weeks.  Tech professional would only use this function to retrieve the data before a complete reinstallation.
