Windows Vista Starter / Home Basic / Home Premium / Business / Ultimate 32/64 Bit Bootable DVD with Service Pack 1
This is a new DVD disk used only to create a Windows Vista bootable DVD reinstall / repair / recovery disk with integrated Service Pack 1.
This disk contains every version of Windows Vista available, in both 32 AND 64 bit versions.
This disk is perfect for:
Anyone who owns a desktop, laptop, netbook or workstation manufactured by Dell, Alienware, HP, Compaq, Toshiba, Sony, Samsung, Gateway, Acer, Emachines, IBM, Lenovo, Asus, Fujitsu, MSI, etc. that shipped with Windows Vista but you lost your disk or your hard drive failed. (Even if you don't see your manufacturer listed here, it will still work)
Anyone who replaced their hard drive due to failure or perhaps an upgrade to an SSD.
Anyone who wants to switch from 32 bit to 64 bit or 64 bit to 32 bit.
Anyone who wants to perform a clean reinstallation without all the bloatware that is included by the above manufacturers.
Whatever the reason, if you have a Windows Vista license of ANY kind but lack reinstallation media, this is exactly what you need.
This convenient disk also includes these Windows recovery tools:
Startup Repair: Fixes certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files that might prevent Windows from starting correctly.
System Restore: Restores your computer's system files to an earlier point in time without affecting your files, such as e‑mail, documents, or photos.
System Image Recovery: You need to have created a system image beforehand to use this option. A system image is a personalized backup of the partition that contains Windows, and includes programs and user data, like documents, pictures, and music.
Windows Memory Diagnostics: Scans your computer's memory for errors.
Command Prompt: Advanced users can use Command Prompt to perform recovery-related operations and also run other command line tools for diagnosing and troubleshooting problems.

You must own a legitimate license and corresponding unique 25 digit product key to use and activate this product. You will receive an unlabeled disk, as is required to integrate service packs and hot fixes. It is intended to be booted from, not launched from within Windows. A clean re-installation may not install all system drivers, these can be easily found at the manufacturers website.
