    Check the box the your computer came in it should have a disc with the OS on it. It won't look like a traditional disc but it will have the OS(in your case Vista: Home Premium) written on it. If not, either go find it on the bay of thieves or little green monster. OR call HP, and see if you can get a copy(I've heard some people have done this when they don't recieve a copy).

    No... I didn't get the disc... But the thing is, I want to make my OWN backup on a USB or CD D: It's better w/ your own... Don't ask why XD

    I don't know I'm sure you can find ur OS on little green monster or bay of thieves then burn it; but make sure u still have a key or get a product key. I personally enjoy Win 7 though. [​IMG]

    If you don't have an install disk for windows, you could have a hidden partition on your drive that has it. You should check and see.

    Otherwise you either have to make an image of your drive and restore that, or find an install disk by using other means.
