Thanks all.
The video tutorials are good,It's a shame that there could be one made to show the reinstall process from the time you turn on the pc and entering the disc into the drive.
Thank You.

I found a video on you tube that shows the reinstall process

sml156,
A problem with the video you post is that it suggests cloning is the way to transfer your existing software installation (ie. OS, installed programs, data etc). It is one way and generally not the most efficient. System imaging is more efficient. I think the term cloning suggest a "pristine copy" and therefore the best way to proceed.

I got my first PC when I was 69 - and only because the wife went out and bought a Gateway laptop. Runs still fine today on Vista.

How did you learn so much about computing at that age,What was your occupation before.
I was a mechanical engineer before I retired.
Very good for you well done.

Just one point regarding the video that sml156 gave the guy on the video when he did the boot disc he made it (the Linux method) is that okay or should it have been the windows method??
Thanks.

Well, I had some computer background. But only on big IBM host systems - and those are completely different. And the last program I wrote was in 1966. After that I was only in management jobs.

On the other point - you should use the WinPE recovery disc. You can download the .iso from my Skydrive. Saves you 2 hours of downloading the WAIK.
