Hey everyone, My mother in laws laptop - which currently runs windows vista has become corrupt. Her laptop never came with a recovery disk (which is supposed to reinstall windows vista I think) I have downloaded the recovery disk and put it onto cd (both recovery for 32 bit and 64 bit - I don't know which version she is running as I can't access her laptop.) Now, this recovery CD definatly re-installs vista? And it doesnt need any serial numbers or reject it because it isn't a ligitimate copy?? Is there anything else I should know about the recovery disk? I do have one my uncle did for me when my vista laptop went hay-wire but it has a virus, but I got rid of it when I reinstalled my anti-virus and did a scan. I would feel better using the one I have made as it doesnt have a virus. Also, another friend wants me to do her desktop computer - would using the recovery disk on hers be safe aswell?? Thanks for any help you can offer.
