Recreate Vista Image

Hi ,
I have a R61 with Vista Home premium(and a hell of junk softwares preloaded)
I would like to recreate the rescue and recovery image(available via the blue ThinkVantage button)
As I have Vista RTM on my machine(with updates later on), my idea is to slipstream Vista SP1, add the set of Office and Antivirus and other Educational softwares that I get at a discounted rate from my college and create a basic backup image which i could use in cae of emergency.
I need to know how to erase the preinstalled image and save my own customised image into the hidden partition.
Also is i would like to know how can i get the OEM branding for my laptop. I believe if i get hold of a normal Vista CD and put the key from the back of my laptop it may not always work. I need a workaround for this also. Also do i need to un-activate my system, as the key is being used currently.
