I need the location of where I can download Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit OS to use to restore a PC I am working on. I know there is a site where I can download the ISO and then burn it.
thanks in advance.

Most likely you can get a restore disk from the manufacturer of the PC... I don't believe Microsoft will provide them anymore, even for a fee, but you can ask.
Or find someone with one that can share it, since I do believe sharing the install files is not illegal, just sharing or copying licensing keys...

Microsoft didn't start doing the online distribution stuff until Windows 7, so you're not going to find a Vista ISO on any legit sites. It's findable, but I am not going to recommend anywhere that houses pirated software. You're best bet would be to check on eBay or something of that sort and try to find an old copy for sale.

I got my Vista license (for a virtual machine) on eBay. I checked out the vendor and was assured I could return the package if the key did not work. The key works fine.
