The retail version installation disk for Windows Vista contains more than just installation related files. There is also a “recovery center” included on the disk which lets you repair start up problems, restore backups, and lots more. However, if you bought a computer with Windows Vista preinstalled, chances are you weren’t provided with a Vista install disk.

NeoSmart has come to the rescue and created a download that will allow you to burn your own CD with the recovery tools. All you have to do is download the iso file, burn it to a CD, pop the newly created CD into your computer and boot from it.
