My old man has Toshiba Satellite with Vista on it and I recently fixed something on.

The computer runs slow. It's really bad, to the point where I don't know how he even uses it. I told him that I would reformat it for him, to bring it back to stock settings and had him back up all of his important files.

I can't find the disc that came with it, the one to bring it back to out-of-the-box status, bloatware and all.

I have a homemade DVD with Vista and Windows 7 on it that I used when I built this computer. Can I use that disc to reformat his laptop and install nothing on it but an OS?

If not, wat do?

The Toshiba might have a partition that includes the Windows setup files.

But as long as you have the product key that came with that Toshiba, and the version of Vista that you're installing matches up with that product key, I'd say that's the best way to go.
