There is no site you can legally download an OEM version of Vista, or even a retail version for that matter. You can contact Fujitsu support and see if they have recovery disks available for your computer or you can install a linux distro like Mint or Ubuntu if recovery disks are no longer available.

good afternoon dear friend JohnC_21

i thank you so much for your kind reply

good idea !

i don't think fujitsu to have those recovery disks for download, maybe for purchase

i was working with linux (from usb) on my fujitsu esprimo desktop but only for internet

i don't think to say with linux because i cannot find any serious software for audio/video like the software i am running (sony vegas, adobe audition)

i have posted my linux experience in the linux forum some time ago

If you need Sony Vegas and Adobe Audition then you may be better off purchasing an OEM disk of Windows 7 if your computer has the specs to support it. If you know anybody with a Vista disk with the same version as yours you could use the key on the COA sticker but you would need to activate by phone.

 

Linux equivalents to Sony Vegas would be OpenShot, Cinelarra, and Kdenlive.

 

The closest to Adobe Audition would be Audacity.

good afternoon dear friend JohnC_21 and i thank you for your kind reply

i have used audacity some years back

it is really a good program with plenty of tools for sound edit but audition is a pro grade sound editor

i will check the video editors for linux as well
