    Download Windows Vista 64-Bit (x64) Recovery Disc

    These days people who get Windows Vista with a new computer or laptop from the major manufacturers like Dell, Acer, Toshiba HP and others will find they don’t get a Windows Vista DVD with their new computers. It doesn’t matter that you spent hundreds on your new computer with a valid Windows Vista you still are not entitled to the DVD.

    The problem with that is simple, when you have problems with your Windows installation and it’s not booting you need to use that disc to recover from the problem. For some people they have downloaded or borrowed Windows Vista discs from PC who purchased a full copy of Vista in a shop. Windows Vista has gone a step further having a simple recovery center with automated tools which will fix your install (unlike the XP days where you had to use Recovery Console and command lines to fix it) yet despite this without a disc customers can’t get to use this feature!

    Luckily Microsoft has listened to peoples complaints and have kindly made a recovery disc. It contains the contents of the Windows Vista DVD’s “Recovery Center”. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista but does provide you with all the Recovery tools which should hopefully get you back on track.

    Download:

    Download Windows Vista 64-bit (x64) Recovery Disc
    Edit: Sadly we received a DMCA Takedown request for this and can no longer provide download mirrors. Sorry about that :/

    Alternatively:

    Are you using the 32-bit version of Windows Vista? (If you are unsure, you are most likely using 32-bit). If so:
    Download Windows Vista 32-bit (x86) Recovery Disc

    Its important to ensure you use the right version (32/64 bit) for the Windows Vista you have otherwise it can cause problems!

    How to use:

    Unzip the recovery disc you downloaded, then burn the CD Image (ISO file) to a disc, if you are unsure how to do this why not have a look at Digiex's How to burn BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, ISO, MDS, NRG and PDI images to disc guide.

    If your bios is set to boot from CD / DVD you can now put the burned disc in your computer and boot the recovery disc. If not you will have to set your computer to boot from DVD before the hard disk. You have to do this in the computers bios which is usually accessed by pressing F2 or Delete when you power the computer on.

    Hmm, I have 32-bit and my PC says its 64-bit capable. So if I download that would it make it to 64-bit, or would I have to do this by other means?

    Not with this, you would need to obtain a 64bit Vista install cd, but your existing cd key would work and activate the 64bit version fine.

    So I might be able to just burn a Vista 64-bit CD then? Also would you consider 64-bit Vista better? I'm not to sure 'bout the differences between 32-bit and 64-bit.

    64bit Vista will allow you to use 4gb of ram or more, you can also run 64bit applications.

    64bit applications will run better than the 32bit versions however there’s not really that many out there, the GameCube emulator is a good example of an application running better on a 64bit os compared to a 32bit os.

    Apart from that there’s no new features or extra applications on Vista 64bit, you would be able to just burn and install Vista X64 as long as you have a valid licence it will still be legal.
