    What's the make & model of the PC in question? Do you know if it has a restore partition?

    Search Google for '[your computer's manufacturer name] recovery partition' and try to boot to the partition using the relative command given. If you don't have a recovery partition you'll need to obtain a copy of Windows Vista SP2 Home Premium legitimately.

    Pinkmoon89,

    I've edited your post to remove "preferably" as there is no other option but to use a legitimate copy of an OS.

    Thanks. If you're wondering why I put that in the first place, it's because most ISO of an operating system obtained illegitimately usually have incorrect checksums (suggesting there is malware present), and therefore I was trying to educate the OP. Should have made that a lot more clear in my post instead of a vague implication.

    Anyway, sorry to go off-topic :p
