✔ Best Answer
If you have your Vista Cd & product number, reinstalling this way, will clean the drive & you lose everything.

Step 1: Go into the bios & set the boot order to boot from the CD first.
Step 2: Put your Vista Cd in the Drive.
Step 3: Press F10 & OK/Yes
Step 4: Watch for the very brief message > Press any key ( You only press it once during the install )

Now follow the onscreen instructions.

Make sure when you reinstall, you delete ALL partitions & format to NTFS.

Vista - Drive options (advanced)

Here are some examples of why you delete all partitions.
