Reload Vista on dv9000

I'm trying to reload Vista on a dv9000 laptop. I don't see a windows CD in my packet that came with the computer, nor do I see an install partition.

Can someone tell me how this should have come setup? Is there supposed to be a CD I can use to re-install?

Re: Reload Vista on dv9000

They didn't include a recovery CD with these. When you got it you were supposed to make a set of recovery DVDs. You can order them here in the US and I think Canada 1-800-227-8164. The recovery DVDs set were about $16 + shipping. You will need the following inforamtion from the Serial tag on the bottom the Serial number and the configuration number (like DV9410US) to get the right one for your machine.
