    OK so you need to get yourself an external CD drive. Dell sell them to match.
    The system is shipped with Vista so why would you need to install - if to repair the installation then you need to follow the procedure built into the machine. Check the manual for details.

    Hi Jello
    I think you need some hands on professional help - there are still some Dell stores in the US so I suggest you take the laptop in there and they will advise you exactly what to do - including supply an external CD drive.
    You can also use the Dell website - all you have to do is prove ownership and they will help you over the phone.
