    WHERE do I INSTALL WINDOWS VISTA ??
  3. There is no direct path to roll back from Windows 10 to Vista.

    You would need to already have the Windows Vista installation DVD and valid key. If you had those you would then perform a fresh install on your machine and totally wipe away the Windows 10 installation.

    Also, please don't type in all caps, everyone who comments here at Tom's is trying their best to help you.

    I don't have a Windows Vista installation DVD. Where could I get one, or download the img onto?
  5. You'll need to purchase a Windows Vista License

  6. It's going to be fairly difficult to get a valid copy as they are all VERY old at this point. You can search on Amazon or Newegg for the installation media, and if you find a valid copy you'll also be paying for the new key so be ready to spend about $100.

    As Wolfshadw was quick to point out, we only help support legal software use here at Tom's so the best we can do is point you in the direction of buying a new copy of Vista from a trusted vendor.

    What store? Also where can I get the BOOOOT image????????????????????
  10. the boot image is on the cd you buy from a store, checknewegg amazon.
  11. 1. You won't find it for sale. They stopped selling it years ago. "They" = anywhere reliable. Microsoft, Newegg, Amazon

    2. Why do you need to install Vista?
  12. Best answer
    Windows Vista from Amazon Reseller.

    Cannot speak to the legitimacy of this purchase, but it's what I found after a quick search. Check with Amazon's reseller policy about any buyer protections.
