Vista Home Premium 64bit OEM download

    Question

  • I had to wipe an HP Pavilion laptop that was completely infected.  I do not have the recovery cd's.  I do have the key on the computer.  I am looking to download OEM version of Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit.  Can you lead me to a link to download it?

    Thank you,

  • You can borrow a System Builder or Retail disk from someone and use that.

    You can (possibly) buy a set of Recovery media from HP

    You cannot download a copy of Vista from any legitimate site, now that MS have removed the files from their Digital River providers.

    Copies downloaded from torrents, etc. may be hacked or compromised - be VERY careful about using them.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.

  • You would be much better off purchasing and installing an edition of Windows 7.
