Your system spec say it's a home built machine. Do you want to re-install Vista? If you want a clean install of Vista or Windows 7 just slap that disk in and format and re-install. That will be "factory"....your factory from when you built it.

Boot the install DVD, select Custom install, then use drive tools to Delete, repartition and format before install.
