I’ve had numerous emails sent to me wondering how people can use Vista’s advanced system recovery options when their computer doesn’t come with a Vista installation disc. One reader also pointed out that this was a problem when trying to fix the “BOOTMGR is Missing” error some receive when starting up their computer.
So how can you get around this? NeoSmart whipped up a Vista Recovery Disc using some tools provided by Microsoft. With it you’ll be able to faithfully use Vista’s recovery tools without actually having the original setup media.
The download is 120MB in size, and it will need to be burned to a DVD/CD before it can be used. If you don’t already have the Vista setup media it’s wise to download and burn this now before the day arises that you aren’t able to bootup your computer. ;)
Get the Vista Recovery Disc directly from MediaFire
