Recovery Discs

 Blocked Profile -

Well my question is about the Recovery Discs you create when you buy a new computer. What would happen if i used a XP recovery discs to a different computer that has Vista? I have had nothing but problems with the Vista computer that i have had for 2 years, and the recovery discs from xp computer are from a Sony also.

Are these recovery disc able to load everything, if i was to format my computer and start from scratch??

If i format my computer and start from scratch do i need to buy windows vista OS from store? Or am i able to use recovery discs to give my computer a OS?

hi there,

recovery disk is to be used on the pc it was

created from

using it on another pc may either not install

or if installed not working properly as drivers of the other pc will be installed
