  • Hi,


    Before moving on, please let me know whether you are using an OEM computer.


    If so, there should be a hidden partition on your hard drive. It includes computer manufacturer customized Windows Vista installation files. It is not recommended to wipe the hidden partition. I suggest you contact computer manufacturer to ask detail steps to do it. Thank you for your understanding.


    If you are not using an OEM computer, I suggest you contact Microsoft Customer Service to get a installation disk. We cannot wipe a hard drive and reinstall Windows Vista without installation disk.
