Default Re: if i want to....

you'll be fine as long as you don't delete the wrong partition.

After rereading I have to say I'm not 100% sure about the recovery disk. If I was you I would download a copy of a regular vista install disk or go to a local computer shop and see if they would be kind enough to burn you one. I know we used to do it for people once and a while and as long as you have a legal COA it's not illegal to do so. I can't guarantee it with the recovery disk without seeing what it's options are first.
