Windows vista recovery cd I created won't install on new hard drive


Which software did you use to create the recovery disk? Is the recovery disk a CD or DVD?

Just to recover a vista system from recovery DVDs would require at least two DVDs. Your files would be in addition to this so I would be very surprised if you have only a single disk containing both the operating system and all of your files.

A simple recovery disk would only be useful for restoring lost operating system files to a hard disk that had corrupted or deleted files. It would let you restore to a new blank disk.

If the disk only contains a backup of your data then you would need to first install an operating system (Vista or Windows 7) and then install the backup software you used to create the disk and then you could recover your data from the disk.

Non-System Disk or Disk Error Boot from CD


The error means that the CD you have in the drive is not a system disk. Remove it. Are you trying to boot from a CD, if so make sure it is a repair disk or operating system disk. If not, remove the disk and you system will then look to boot from the Hard Drive.

Run the Check Disk Utility.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My computer wont read disks it was able to a few days ago and i went to go put in a disk that needs to get installed before i can use a camera. I have tried others disks and it wont read any of them....


You need to first check if the disk is being detected by Computer--

click start---computer ---check if the disk that u insert is visible there or not.
And also chk in device manager---by right click on computer--properties---device manager(vista)--look for cd/dvd drive.
right click on my computer---properties---hardware----device manager(xp))--look for cd/dvd drive.

If not visible in device manager then u have to open up ur computer and reseat the cd/dvd drive cables...

If its visble in device manager--then right click on the option under cd/dvd drive----properties----check for the error code.
If error code 19 , 31 , 32 , or 39 is displayed inside Device Status.

Then click start -- run -- and -- type regedit -- click ok . the registry editor appears.

In windows XP -- click file -- EXPORT-- TYPE A FILENAME THAT IS EASY FOR YOU TO REMEMBER AND CLICK SAVE.

A COPY OF THE REGISTORY HAS SAVED FOR BACKUP PURPOSE.
CLICK THE PLUS SIGN (+) NEXT TO THE FOLLOWING ITEMS IN THE LIST :

In Vista click:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CURRENTCONTROLSET (OR THE CURRENT CONTROL SET WITH LOWEST NUMBER IF THAT IS ALL THAT IS LISTED)
CONTRO
CLASS
SELECT 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318
SELECT THE UPPER FILTER IN THE RIGHT WINDOW AND PRESS THE DELETE KEY
CONFIRM THE DELETION BY CLICKING YES
SELECT THE LOWER FILTERS IN THE RIGHT WINDOW AND PRESS THE DELETE KEY
