    When you use the recovery disks, all info on the hard drive will be deleted. It will be a "fresh" install of Vista. Make sure you back up your documents before you install the recovery disks.

    Good luck!

    @ alvine - Is this possible, even if the programs clearly says it is not compatible with Windows 7 ?
