Evidently the startup repair option is not available to all vista users now

Supposedly sp1 will allow users to create their own disk on cd?

In the meantime I found this one link?

On some newer systems the OEM's have customized the Startup Repair options - so inserting their DVD will allow you to run Startup Repair (usually down at the bottom of the list will be a "factory recovery" option).

I've seen this with either Gateway or HP - but can't recall which.

Thanks for the recovery disk link - it'll come in handy!

Try this link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/
Did a disc/set of discs come with your computer? Have you made the recovery discs for it?

A dry run is a good idea, when things go wrong is the worst time to perform an unfamiliar operation, read the guide here from the first post and try booting to the disk, you may have burned a coaster and don't know it

I wouldn't start testing many of the advanced tools

NeoSmart Technologies recommends using ImgBurn as a free & reliable solution.


word is finally getting around

I have reccomended it here quite some time ago?
