Hello Raja Amadala, and welcome to Vista Forums,
If you wish to create the Recovery Disc in this tutorial then you can use Option One to do so. However, the Disc will not reinstall Vista. It is only good to use to help repair Vista with the System Recovery Options.
If you wish to reinstall Vista, then you should be able to from your recovery partition. Your computer's documentation or manufacturer's website should show you how to.
You should also please refer back to your other post to see what Nigel has posted to help you with this as well.
Hope this helps,
Sir , I have installed vista sp1 and with out the disk, so the two options are not for me, but i tried the first option " when i tried to open the file it says "unable to load the .torrent file" so plz fix this problem
Did you follow the instructions at their website to use the uTorrent file to open the downloaded torrent file?
You will not be able to open the file unless you do.
Download: Windows Vista x64 Recovery Disc — The NeoSmart Files
Hope this helps,
- Download the appropriate .torrent file from above that corresponds to the version of Windows Vista you have installed.
- Download and run µTorrent.
- Open the .torrent file you downloaded with µTorrent. (File -> Add Torrent)
I first had the impression that the original Vista Installation disc was up for download but then read the description on Neosmart's page (I'd like to take this space to thank them for EasyBCD).
I was lucky that with my laptop, I was supplied with 2 recovery DVDs and a Vista installation disc, but I don't understand why some OEM suppliers don't supply them. Anyways, I do see the potential of these discs when repairing a Vista install - thanks for the tutorial.
You're welcome Frank.
Sorry for not reading every message in the post, but I created my recovery discs (3 DVD+R's) when my computer prompted me to in August. (Vista Home Premium x64 on an HP). This week, it's asking me to create another set. Do I really need to make new Recovery discs this often? I've added some software since the first set (AutoCAD 2008 and some games).
Thanks in advance.
Hello Bhakeman, and welcome to Vista Forums.
This is not the same as a OEM Recovery DVD. It is used only to boot to the System Recovery Options screen to try and repair Vista. See Note at the top of the tutorial for more details.
Not sure why you would be getting asked if you want to create another OEM set though.
Is your HP machine asking you to run off another set of recovery discs?
I heard HP machines only allow you to make one set. Haven't got an Hp machine myself, so maybe they've changed that.
No idea why it would ask you to do that. Does it say anything in your manual about it?
This may seem dumb, but I don't know what version I have! All it says when I look at the properties is Service Pack 1. Some help that is, lol.
Never mind, I found it. Right in front of my nose! Durrr...
Ok, HP's "Total Care Advisor - PC Action Center" within my PC says under 'critical alerts' that my PC "Contains a program that creates a set of recovery disks for your system. You will need these disks to reinstall your operating system and software, should you have a problem with your hard drive. It is highly recommended that you create your recovery disks now." This is listed as a 'Critical' Item in the 'Action Center'. The more I look at it, I think this is an old alert since I already have a set of Recovery DVD's.
Also, it's recommending that I "Purchase a Service Plan"...
I think it's time to uninstall "HP Total Care Advisor".
