Laptop supplied with Vista installed but no Vista disk

    Hi, I bought a recon laptop advertised as inclusing Vista. It came
    with Vista installed ok, but no vista disk.

    So if my OS gets corrupted, I'm screwed, right?

    Or is there a way I can produce a Vista installation CD from the
    already-installed system?

    Thank you,

    JD

    Akex,

    Cool - thanks! I assumed that MS would have made that impossible,
    under the excuse that it infringed their copyright or something.

    Check under Programs->PC Help & Tools for "Recovery Disc Creation"

    I'm using a Compaq Presario Desktop not a laptop, iirc it indicates
    it will make one copy.

    I'm pretty sure the vendor is required to give you some way to
    reinstall.

    GL,
