I went onto the DVD order page. I put the product key in, and it said "no offer available". Any help?

It sounds like about you can do is create a Restore DVD yourself using Vistas build-in creater.

Maybe using nlite will allow you to create a complete copy, if nothing else pans out.

No, you pay for postage. It's only a few pounds though.
