Need a copy of vista home premium

I am after a copy of vista home premium, not the full package, just a copy of the cd.

and before people start saying its illegal, its not, i will be using my own coa code which is on my laptop, but i have lost the recovery partition on my hard drive as its naffed.

i will cover the postage and cost of cd.

if this should be in the FS/FT section, then i am sorry and can the mods move the thread there

if you have the COA, just download the cd from one of the many torrent sites.

Make it a bootable ISO file using Nero.

you know when it says activated next to the download, does that mean its illegal, i honestly just need a legit copy so i can use my coa,

iv got the torrent but just making sure if the 'activated' ones are illegal?

I actually need the disc as iv just moved house and lost mine >.> Now i need it to repair the bloody startup >.>

If you download Windows XP/Vista/7/whatever ISO image and it doesn't boot up, then its a crap download. You don't need to do anything special to it to make it bootable.

You don't want an already 'activated' version, you need a vanilla image, ie completely untouched and un-edited.
