wanna go back to vista!

hey guys i have got the windows 7 rc ( see system specification) and i want to go back to vista. i have lost the vista installation cd and i phoned up for another one but they told me to buy a recovery disc, which i didn't want. because this is an acer laptop, it has a hidden partition called pqservice, that i have created access to (using easeus partition manager). from research i have found out that u can use that partition to recover ur computer to factory defaults. any ideas on how you use this partition to restore?
thanks to anyone who can tell me how to solve this.

Why do you want to go back to vista? Is there something you dont like about Windows 7 or something not working?

well, i just dont like the idea of having my lappy shutting down every hour when it comes near the expiry date and having to upgrade and download 2.5 gb worth out of 10 gb monthly usage. there isnt much improvement in the rc from vista apart from the task bar. i also liked the darker, cooler aurora themes of vista - seven log on screen is too bright and flowery!

While boot up and shutdown times seem to be about the same I have noticed desktop operations to be a little faster in Windows 7 v/s Vista or XP. That's about the extent of my satisfaction so far. Just about everything else has been an exercise in frustration for me. This is really starting to piss...
