I just bought a new laptop, a Gateway M-1615. The system came with Windows Vista Home Premium and of course all the bloatware that comes with it. I am wanting to do a clean install of Vista Ultimate and wondered "how would I go about this?". I see the a link for a modded Gateway Bios but I have no idea if it is compatible with this laptop and don't want to chance bricking it since it is new. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Looking at the Bios on my system it says bios version is 90.02 (KBC Version: 75.16) and shows up as Phoenix Bios (setup utility). Not sure if this info is critical. Again any help would be greatly appreciated.
