For Dell Inspiron owners - Do you get a vanilla Vista DVD with purchase ?

    Hi all

    I bought a laptop from Dell recently, will be arriving at the end of the month hopefully. Now, I'm expecting lot of crapware to be installed from the beginning so what I plan to do is start over and install a fresh Vista without the extra stuff Dell install.

    But, do Dell actually give you an ordinary Vista DVD or is it just a recovery Dell Vista disc that has all their extra mess ?

    Much appreciated.


    No a section of your harddrive is partioned for recovery

    That's disappointing. Could I just use a Vista DVD, wipe the the hard drive and use the key Dell give me and use that with a vanilla Vista DVD ?
