Help! Does anyone happen to have a Windows Vista CD they no longer want or need, that they don't mind sending to me?
I have been given a newish laptop that has been abused a bit and suffered a hard drive failure and as with most new laptops, the operating system recovery was on a partition on the hard drive.
I have now replaced the hard drive and now need to put an OS back on it. I have a dodgy version of XP, but I would rather keep it legal seeing as it has a license for Vista (it still has the Vista label on the bottom of the laptop with the serial code).
I would go out and buy a copy but as the laptop came with it, it seems like a waste of money as you are almost getting into the territory of the price of a new laptop! Also it has been knocked about a bit and I don't know what else is wrong with it.
