    Hello,

    Is it possible to install an OEM version of Vista Home Basic on a notebook
    that was purchased with Vista Hpme Basic already Installed? A friend has an
    Acer Aspire 3680 that will not boot. An error screen pops up saying the OS
    cannot load because a critical file is missing. The notebook did not come
    with any installation discs. There is/was a recovery partion on the
    notebook, but she did not burn a disc.

    Thanks,

    Curt.
