Found 4th Jun 2009
Hi there. Had a nighmare with the PC the last few days.

I had a perfectly legal PC but the graphics card wrecked the machine and the recovery partition was corrupted. Therefore, I would like to do a clean install of Vista. Does anyone know if its possible to download Vista legally as I would be using the same product key as before.

Cheers

No download links?

Why not give windows 7 a try ,Just download it and install itas free until june 2010,

There's no way to download vista legally, unless you purchases through the microsoft store.

Which version are you looking for? 32-bit or 64-bit.

I have a OEM 64-bit Vista Home Premium backed up for just in case scenarios. It's not illegal because without a COA it's just trial software. Otherwise I only have 32-Bit Dell Vista disks which might not work if yours is not a Dell machine.

I'd be happy to burn a copy and send it if you needed it.
