I was trying to do a system recovery with the disks provided with the purchase of my Asus laptop.

It could not read my driver disks that is asked for and so i went to take the disk out, and turn off the machine in hopes to get it into the shop.. when all of a sudden.. it started downloading windows xp home with no disk.

This may not be a miracle, but to someone with my knowledge, it sure it. Anyhow, i would like my Vista back. How do i get it back? I paid for a laptop with Vista on it, i never got an actual disk dedicated strickly to Vista install so i am confused. It has the product key on the bottom and a pretty little sticker by the key board that says "windows Vista"

Microsoft Windows XP
Version 2002
Service Pack 3

Manufactured and supported by:
ASUSTek Computers Inc.
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU
P8400 @ 2.26GHz
2.27 GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM

Hope that helped. and thank you in advance for your help.
