You need to be more specific. Microsoft doesen't just give the setup file for Vista away. Where was it found? I seriously doubt you have what you think you do.

If you want a bootable DVD, you would need to download an image from a torrent site (not that I'm condoning this) and burn it to DVD with a program such as MagicISO.

sounds like he found the recovery partition to me. I don't believe burning it will help you, if that's what it is. You will have to leave that in tact and boot to it if you ever needed to recover the OS.

It's Windows Anytime Upgrade. I'm afraid that wont work as a normal installation disk, and you would need to do as I said before for a bootable setup disk.

That's 5 "lol"s I counted in that post :p

What do you mean? I'm not sure if I'm answering your question, but if you download and burn a copy of Vista, you can check it simply by putting it in your disk drive..
