Windows Vista® Recovery Disk
How to use the recovery disk for Windows Vista®?
Windows Vista® is an operating system from Microsoft®, which comes preloaded on most newly manufactured PCs and laptops. There are different ways to troubleshoot the issues related to system crashes and other hardware-related problems. Windows Vista® provides a recovery disk with a computer. One can recreate the installation media with freely downloadable media from Microsoft®. You should keep certain things in mind while downloading the recovery software from the website. You should download it from the authorized providers of the recovery software. There are pirated versions of the software which are also available, but you should download the original from the manufacturer’s site only.
The recovery disk software works in the following way:
- Create a recovery disk by downloading the software
- Boot from recovery CD
- Fix problems in Windows Vista®
Create a recovery disk by downloading the software
Windows Vista® recovery is a method of resolving problems within an existing installation of Windows Vista®, by booting from a recovery CD or partition and using the tools within the recovery software. Several websites host CD images of the Windows Vista® recovery CD, which can be downloaded, and burned to a blank CD in order to create a new recovery disk. The CD images are saved as ISO files which will require the user to download an ISO burning program in order to transfer it to a CD.
Boot from recovery CD
To recover Windows Vista®, you should boot your system from the recovery CD which should be inserted in the DVD drive to start the OEM factory recovery. You should press the ‘F11’ key or some other function key (the system will tell you which function key to be pressed for recovery at start up) during startup to do the factory recovery from the recovery disk.
The recovery allows possible sources of problems, such as faulty drivers to be removed, and system to be rolled back to an earlier date, presumably before the sources of any errors were installed. The Windows Vista® recovery disk will help you to repair a malfunctioning operating system.
