    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.


    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

    Hey there!

    Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A place where you can find solutions for your problems with the help of the community!

    I understand that you can not restore your PC by using the restore disks.

    It seems that you did not follow the process of creating media recovery or data backup process.

    If you are unable to restore the image by using the discs.

    Please use this link to find out how to create a recovery media: http://hp.care/2byIEKi

    However, you can contact HP and get a set of system recovery disks.

  • HP Mini 110-3130NR and the new hard drive - how to create an image and use it?

    I want to replace the current hard drive to my HP Mini 110-3130NR of a new SSD.

    Ideally, I'd like to copy the disc hard integer on the SSD and then just swap hard disks (create a picture of the current hard drive work in the SSD).

    Otherwise, I have an external USB hard drive, so I could save the contents of the original hard drive and restore the image in the SSD. The problem is that HP Mini doesn't have a DVD player/burner, and I fear that it does not start via a USB device.

    Any help is welcome. Thank you.


    OK, all these programs did not help ast all, they still have some problems with SSDS (I tried an Intel X 25-M SSDSA2MH080G2K5 and an OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G).

    This is so the fix for the problem, all you need a 4 GB flash drive.

    In Windows XP, Vista or seven plug the flash drive into the computer, open a command window (type cmd in the search) and type:


    In the window that opened type:

    list disk

    Find the number corresponding to your USB key and type the following commands, replacing X with the number corresponding to your flash drive:

    Select disk X
    create the primary partition
    Select partition 1
    format fs = NTFS

    Then insert a DVD Windows Seven of INTAL, open the command prompt and navigate to the "Startup" folder in the Windows 7 DVD.
    Starting inside this folder, run the command:

    Bootsect/nt60 W: - replacing the W with the letter assigned to your flash drive.

    After that, simply copy the entire contents of the Windows 7 Installation DVD to flash drive, drive to the computer with the newly installed SSD and start from the flahs player.
