i,ve got vista basic as O.S. is there a way to copy just vista basic to a disc. as in the bare bones start up with out all the programs i have installed the laptop. what i,m trying to say is i want to start afresh without all the programs i have installed. just like loading vista basic for the very time. i have not got the vista basic disc because i bought the laptop from a catalogue with vista pre=installed, the only disc i,ve got is recovery disc,please advise,cheers .

unless you purchase another copy of vista, you need to use the recovery. Besides, it will have all the drivers you need for your laptop to work properly. If you installed vista from another copy, you will have to search online at the manufacturers website for all the proper drivers.

a system recovery will normally wipe everything out before installing. you can also get a utility such as dban to wipe the drive before instlling.
