Reinstall Vista

Hi

 

I just got my Lenovo laptop. I used the installed Lenovo program to make disks for reinstalling software. Is there someway I can choose only to reinstall Windows Vista and not all the extra programs like Office trial version, McAfee trialversion etc. etc.

Re: Reinstall Vista

im afraid not. the rescue and revovery program only makes a factory default recovery disk meaning all that stuff will be included on the disk.

To bad - I would really like if they had included a DVD only with Vista and drivers

If you do a system recovery from the built in restore partition you might get the option to do a custom restore where you can de-select some components you do not want. This option was available for a while on most models. YMMV.
