  1. Did you do an upgrade installation? A dual boot?
    Or a clean installation of Windows 8?
  2. Hi :)

    There is no uninstall...you just install your Vista over the top from DOS and format everything...

    All the best Brett :)
  3. Like I asked above, what type of installation did you do for your Windows 8 CP?

    a clean installation
  6. Delete the partitions and reinstall is your only option.

    Yes you will have to do a clean installation since you wiped-out Vista when you installed Windows 8 C.P. on the same partition as Vista was on.

    Do you have the recovery partition still on the hard drive or the VISTA DVD?
  8. No, I do not have the recovery partition on the hard drive.
