here to kill your monster
I've got problems with my copy of vista which started as an implication that the license wasn't genuine - since involves lock-ups etc.

Anyway i've called MS for help - they did the remote desktop assist thing and, after confirming the license is genuine, played around with this and that.
In the end it was decided i needed a vista disk to repair - and you know what? microsoft don't have any. they cant send you one at all.
i was advised to borrow one off a friend or failing that - get this - find an image on the internet.

how bizarre is that?

No surprise. Remember when certain game developer "updated" their game with an .exe which turned out to a cracked executable form a famous scene group?

Yer gonna get spammed with W7 upgrade propositions.
I knew that XP was no longer "available" but that's darn fast for Vista.

Try again tomorrow!

Seeing that MS earns the money by selling you the license to use their product and not by selling you the physical copy of it, I think that's a surprisingly sensible approach to your problem.

Also, "pirating" is only "pirating" if you don't own it. As you do, it's perfectly legal for you to download the image.

I still think it's weird that they have no copies. I know they are pushing 7 of course, but nevertheless vista was an expensive product not so long ago.
Now if they can sort out my OS using the remote assist or another method then it's not an issue.
But if a technician says the only way to fix your product is to run the repair of the installation disk (and i can't be the only user at that stage) it's then surprising to say the least to hear that they can't supply that.

were they to say you can have one but at a charge or 'it's oem so it's not our responsibility - contact your vendor' that would have made sense .
The download suggestion was just off-the-record advice, it was more the fact that that advice was needed that got me.

I still use XP.

I prefer it to W7; it just works better. I don't know if it's the UI, but it's way better for me.

i like XP - and arma runs better on it by all accounts. Cos arma's not DX10 or something? Or at least it doesn't utilise vista/7

Prefer W7 myself, I have a duel boot setup.
Sometimes I swap, just to check this or that, but its W7 daily for me.
