I'd perfer to have my own cd-key than having to share one, so im guessing you mean someone who has bought the retail version not an OEM?

If your PC still boots you can just get the CD-key you currently have, or if you bought it it might have a sticker on it with the cd-key. Then you can just DL the software, burn it and install it.

If you would like an original copy of windows Vista i am happy to download and burn the software for you as i am a university student i get this for free. I would also be willing to give you a legit key if needed but only if you post me a CD as i have none spare :)
