Creating a boot disk from which to install Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system will let you reinstall the OS, which can be useful if your computer manufacturer failed to include a disk with your purchase. You can make a Vista install boot disk by downloading a disk image (or ISO) of the Windows Vista Recovery Disc and burning it to CD.
