Hi, just wondering if it is possible to make a bootable vista home premium disk from a computer with a genuine Vista license. As you know companies such as Gateway Dell etc don't provide the pure install software just stupid recovery disks. If this is not possible is there a cheap alternative to acquiring just a data DVD of Vista without the license? I find it frustrating these companies provide you a license but not the genuine software. Thanks. Not looking to do anything illegal unless im forced to by these companies.

Some of those options require the original Vista DvD which is the problem, can you use a restore image on computers other than the original?
