    I need a safe link to the Windows Vista Home Basic, SP 2, OS. I'll need to move the file to thumb drive for installing. I tried another download link and it was virus infected.

    Thanks.

    What I suspect Mike is actually looking for is the .ISO file for Windows Vista Home Basic SP2 32-bit or 64-bit so he can create a bootable install disc.

    Whoops. You are correct, I may have read Mike's post the wrong way. I found discussions on other forums that seem to agree that there is no download available from Microsoft. Some mention downloads are available from Digital River, which I believe Microsoft has used for downloads. However, the URLs in the link seems to be to digital river sound alike domains.

    May need to get with the OEM of this machine and get a system disk from them, IF they even have them any more!
