recovery disks suck.

Download Vista off the net, call MSFT and convert the product ID on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop to a CD Key. Install. Profit.

exactly

Recovery disks usually completely nuke the drive.

Which is what happened to me 0/99 times I've used a recovery disk. If the vista install disk can fix your vista partition, it will. If it can't, it will give you the option of reformatting.
Stop posting, you don't know jack about recovery disks.

Sounds like the system paths are screwed.

only fixes
1. mount the system hive on another computer and delete the volume letter reg strings.
2. Do an Actual repair install of windows.

BartPE is just a PE built from XP (so you do need XP disks and a license for it.)

It can access any version of the NTFS that XP can (of which xp can access the Vista/Win7 partitions.)

AGAIN, ARE YOU INSANE.

DOS DOES RAW FILE COPY, MEANING THERES NO USAGE OF UDMA, it would take hours to copy it all.

Secondly.

DOS CANNOT READ NTFS PARTITIONS,

stop giving crap advice.

FAT32 is an insecure, and non fault tolerant file system.

Anyway boot is faster in FAT32 because it's structure is simpler then the NTFS.

You need to to stop talking now. Seriously. Bootup on Fat32 is far slower since its an unindexed file system. Where as NTFS file locations are indexed in the MFT for fast access.
