Why do you need windows vista Recovery disc?

Most PC manufacturers do not give you a real Windows Vista installation disc on purchase. They only bundle what they call a “recovery disc” or a “recovery partition” with your machine and leave it at that.

However in Windows Vista, the installation media serves more than one purpose. It’s not just a way to get Windows installed, it’s also the only way of recovering a broken installation. The Windows Vista DVD has a “recovery center” that provides you with the option of recovering your system via “automated recovery” (searches for problems and attempts to fix them automatically), rolling-back to a “system restore point”, recovering a full PC backup, or accessing a command-line recovery console for advanced recovery purposes.

Microsoft seems to have realized this problem, and have thankfully made a recovery disc for this purpose. It contains the contents of the Windows Vista DVD’s “recovery center“. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC.

  1. I have created a recovery disk using the default one. BTW whats the size of this file?

  2. so the recovery discs cannot install onto a newly installed clean HD? I recently had to replace my HD in a HP Pavilion dv6607nr laptop. I was going to use my Win Vista ultimate OEM 32bit disc but my computer will only boot to the HD, or network boot. I’ve tried changing the boot order in BIOS but it does no good. I contacted HP support to find out how to re-enable the CD/DVD drive as the primary boot device, but all they would tell me was that i needed to buy a recovery disk? I thought that maybe the recovery disc contained special drivers that would enable the disc to boot before the boot menu?? If I understand your description of the recovery discs on your website, then this is not the case and purchasing their recovery disc would be a complete waste of time??? true??

  3. re-enabling the CD/DVD drive as the primary boot device and recovery disk are not related. May be you could check whether your CD/DVD drive is recognized at all. Do you have a DVD-R drive or a DVD-RW drive or just a CD drive.
