Windows Vista Disk RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Can any one tell me where I can obtain a Windows Vista Home Premium disk?

    I bought a DELL PC a couple of years ago and recently had to replace the motherboard.  Unfortunately my warrant expired about a year ago and although I have successfully replaced the motherboard I do not have a genuine Windows Vista Home Premium disk to re-install the OS.  I have paid for one when I purchased the PC and I have a genuine license key etc.

    Thanks in advance

  • Unfortunately, Windows Vista discs are no longer available.  Consider purchasing a "Full Version" edition of Windows 7 instead.  See: Microsoft Store

  • If you really, really must use Windows Vista, then I suggest you subscribe to TechNet (Standard would be good for you) where you can get access to all versions of Windows.  This will help in the future if you run into a similar situation.

  • Hi Darien Hawk,

    Thanks for your response.  I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 Professional but can't afford it right now.  I know Vista wasn't that great an operating system but I need to use the Vista license I have at the moment.

    I will try the link you sent me.

    Regards
