I have a Vaio VGN-NW11S originally purchased with Vista with the voucher for upgrade to Win7 which was subsequently purchased.
I am retiring the laptop from its primary use and want to reload the laptop. Booting from the Win7 DVD (2) installs a base load of Windows 7 with none of the Vaio optimisations and additional software.
The only way I can see to get these options back is to recover back to Vista then rerun the upgrade as the Supplment DVD (1) will only run under Vista. How can I do a clean Win7 install but get the extra programs?
As an alternative can I refresh the recovery partition so that the next time it will install Win7 straight off?
