Morning,

 

I'm trying to reinstall my laptop with a new SSD. Previously it had Windows Vista on it (yes, I know, old school) but it worked just fine and all my applications worked well too.

 

Upon installing the SSD, I've found my DVD's created using the HP facility are not being read anymore and have probably died. I need to get Vista back on there, but how? The laptop was pre-installed with Vista. HP have said they don't have DVD's for it anymore.

 

I have an .iso file of 32 bit Vista (no other files) however and the full version of Nero 9. Is there any way I can use this to create a bootable DVD to allow reinstalling? Most of the documentation I've looked at says a .com file is required as the boot image file - but I don't have this.

 

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks.

People are making it difficult... click on the one in the  red circle... IF it's a proper Vista ISO, it'll boot.
