Hello, Jeana Zeiner0.
Please see here.
Any questions, please ask.

If you have a recovery partition, use this to revert the system back to 'factory settings (your files will be lost if the OS resides on the same partition as your data)'. As for which CDs DVDs to use, please consult your DVD drive's manual.

In addition, use a USB device, small enough to hold the Recovery CD on USB, that way, you do not have to worry about SCRATCHES or object scratching the surfaces.

I just thought of this idea, because I did this with my LEGIT copy of Win 7 Ult. 64bit to a 4GB USB... worked great but never done it on a Recovery CY to USB..

You may have received an actual Windows Vista DVD with your purchase or a Recovery Disk created by the computer’s manufacturer,or maybe your Laptop came with a Recovery Partition on the hard disk in lieu of a Recovery Disk. While a Recovery Disk or a Recovery Partition will allow you to restore your computer to the original settings from the manufacturer, chances are you will not be able to use it to repair your Windows Vista installation. For that, you will need an actual Windows Vista DVD that contains the Windows Recovery Environment; without the tools contained in the Windows Recovery Environment, you cannot repair your current installation.
