Laptop Says Reinstall Software, do not have disk
My sister was gifted a HP laptop. It's OS is Windows Vista. At first it was asking for a product key. Well, it was taken to the shop and they had to install a new motherboard. So it was saying enter product key, that didn't work. Now the laptop is saying reinstall windows software. She does not have the disks. I was googling and saw this item on amazon's website, it is Windows Vista 64 Bit Recovery Boot Disc Disk CD [ALL VERSIONS, 2012 Latest]. Will we be able to use this item to circumvent paying the tech guy to reinstall the software? Is there anything we can do besides dishing out 60 dollars? Your input is so appreciated.
