Looking for the above O/S

If you have a copy of the OEM edition of windows vista home premium and are willing to sell it or even better borrow it to me

I dont need a code as i already have a code from my laptop but i intalled XP and then found out that i can not get drivers for it

Also if you have or know of any infomation about re-installing vista that would be a great help

you should have a backup disc for vista with your laptop if it was pre installed, if not there should be a recovery partition with it on.

normally a D drive

hope this helps
#2
thanks for your input but thats the problem i removed the back up partition

stupid i know :oops:

if i get no luck on here i will go out and get a brand new retail copy of vista but im not in a rush.

But I thought i would ask on here first. So if anyone can borrow me a oem or retail version of vista home premium that would help loads

and i could leave a securty deposit but paypal if needed
#3
Where about in London are you?
#4
if u search the deal section in the forum about a month ago there is a ms vista oem upgrade disc u can get from microsoft
which suppose to let u pgrade from home to ultimate etc.
but if u put the home key that disc can install home premium too.... of coz provoided that your key is oem and geneiue and still have activation left etc
#5
Write proper england like what I do :p

I dont borrow it to you, I lend it to you

You borrow it :whistling:
#6

Not looking for copied software but thanks

Still looking for help on this so if you can LEND me a disc

I would pay £20 for a LEND of a disc and that would only pay this for legit copy of the O/P :thumbsup:
#8
it's not illegal to download a copy if you own the original cd key. It'll do the same thing as the original disk.
#9
Really?

Finding and downloading a :pirate: copy of the software is not a problem its burning it to a disc so the Laptop things its a legit copy of the software :thumbsup:

any pointers
#10
I'd lend you my disc if necessary (or send you a copy).

If you want to borrow my original disc, I would ask for payment of the disc in full (£60 - ie £40 deposit) in case it doesn't get back to me. Upon return via trackable service, I would refund the balance.

Alternatively, I am happy to provide you a cloned copy of my disc without the deposit amount.

LMK if any of that any good to you.

Just a word of warning if you do download; make sure it's from an as reliable, respected a source as you can find - it is possible someone may have slipstreamed trojans/viruses into the installer.
#11
Yeah i am abit worried about downloading a pirated copy of the O/S for that reason

I could send you a deposit for £40 + payment for postage both ways by special delivery just too be safe if you could send me your original disc plus i would put abit of money on top to say thank you if it works after my deposit is returned and you have the disc back in your possession

I would use paypal to send the money so PM me if your interested in lending me your Disc

cheers geoneo123

#14

Download a copy as suggested beforehand. As long as you have a valid license key it's really nothing to worry about and if you get it from a reliable source (I would suggest actual forums where people post links and give feedback on them much like HUKD does with deals) then you are not going to have a problem.

Have done the same with XP Home and Pro many times and its worked fine.

Having said all that....there is also this from microsoft:

#16
Dude the DVD is nothing, the key is the license just download it like everyone else lol

You could have it within a hour or so
#17
i would prefer a original DVD

for the last time i know i can download a pirated copy of the software.
#18
I have a windows xp home edition disk I'm more then willing to post to you, for nothing.
#19
not thanks i am looking for Vista Home Premium.

thanks for the offer tho :thumbsup:

@spartacus101 Check you PM's mate
#20
geoneo123; I've been trying to PM you but your box has been full... don't know if you still need this, but I was going to message to say I have what you're after (or the Dell counterpart for that matter); completely forgot I had the MS version as I build that many...

LMK if you are still in need; and clear your PMs! I assume you want the Microsoft disc to the left?
