A few months ago, I purchased an HP computer with Vista Home Premium installed. Later, I decided to purchase Vista Ultimate. Since the computer did not have Vista Home Premium on DVDs, I was instructed to burn two DVDs in case I need to reinstall the operating system. I installed Vista Ultimate and then I created a "Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore" image on a USB external hard disk. Here is my question. If my hard disk crashes, I will need to buy another hard disk. Since the two DVDs I burned contain Vista Home Premium and not Vista Ultimate, how do I get the image to the new hard disk? Where can I get the instructions? I thought the first step is to insert the first of the two disks I burned into the CD-ROM but Vista Home Premium does not contain image creation capability like Vista Ultimate.

You'll have to insert your Ultimate CD in order to work with the image on the USB hard drive. Here's the BC tutorial on it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/windows-vista-complete-pc-restore/
