I'm currently in the middle of doing a system restore on my HP DV6 Pavilion Notebook and I'm really interested in installing Windows Vista only and not all the secondary programs that come with the HP factory recovery.

Is this possible?  I use this computer as a client for a database and would prefer not to have all the extra software bloating my system.  

If there is a way I'd like to know how to do it?
Can I download Vista and use the Product Key to activate it?

Any help is appreciated.
