Need for a Windows Vista boot disk
Sometimes you cannot access the recovery system in your hard drive. If this problem occurs, you cannot access Windows Vista and recover confidential data saved on the drive. Sometimes residual data in a hard drive creates problems. Residual data is unwanted data that remains after using erasing a program or a function. You have to perform a diagnostic for scanning the problem with the hardware. You then need to reinstall the whole Operating System. In these circumstances, a Windows Vista boot disk assists you in solving this problem. It provides functions like data recovery, purging, installing Windows Vista Operating System and troubleshooting hardware.
For installing and using a Windows Vista boot disk, you should remember certain points. First, you turn on the Windows Vista Operating System. The booting process will start running at the same time. Booting involves the running of the BIOS function. BIOS is Basic Input/Output System. BIOS includes a set of instructions which makes your machine understand the locations of keyboard, mouse and other hardware devices.
You can solve this issue with Windows Vista by changing the BIOS settings. For this, you have to click the right arrow key on the BIOS screen three times. You will get a BIOS tab. Your machine will then look for the Operating System on your hard drive. If it does not find it there, it will search for the CD. If it cannot find Windows Vista Operating System there either, it will give you a boot failure error. This is how a Windows Vista boot disk functions.
