Can I get Windows Vista Disc ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a ThinkPad T60 which comes with the Windows XP Pro. Also I'm a MSDN subscriber. I tried to call IBM to get the Windows Vista Business Edition(32bits) Recovery DVDs from them. But they won't sell it to me.


    I want the recovery disc. The only reason is it will create a recovery partiton on my harddrive and when I restore my system, I don't have to download all the drivers from IBM.


    Is there any agreement between MS and IBM which won't allow me get the vista recovery disc ?

  • Because this forum is dedicated to validation issues, you’ll need to contact outside support for the expertise necessary to troubleshoot your non-validation related issue.  You can do so by posting or searching in the Vista pubic newsgroups, found here: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.mspx or by following this link to Product Support Services.  Microsoft has a 90 day free support period that starts on the day you first acquire Vista. 

    If you bought your computer pre-installed with Vista either from a computer store or an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) like Dell or Gateway, you’ll need to contact them for support.
