How would you install without disks? If the existing system is in good condition, you can clone it on to a new disk using something like Acronis True Image. If the system has faults, they would transfer because a clone is exactly what it says it is. It is also true, however, is that Vista has had its day - if it ever had one - so it might be better to buy an upgrade version of Windows 7 or 8.
