Hi There
I want to format my main drive and re-install Vista. I've done fresh installs previously several times with 98 and XP, but I had the OS on a disk. Vista came pre-loaded with my Toshiba laptop. I have the Vista keys \ serials from the Vista label on the bottom of my computer, confirmed with Jellybean key extractor. Can someone point me to a good guide as to how I might go about doing this without the OS on a disk? I have a 1Tb backup drive accessible through USB that I've saved all my data on. Thanks in advance folks

Thanks Adeel I will try this. I've already backed up my data to an external USB drive. If I use the option you mentioned, should I first go to the Toshiba website and download my computers drivers or will the recovery option automatically do that?
