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.
You will need to reinstall the ntldr command in order for your install to continue. If you have the physical restore disk, you will need to perform a clean install. When you try to reinstall the restore function without deleting old files, they may be to problem and need to be deleted.
The only way to restore your computer to factory setting with all the software/bloatware as it came with your computer the first day you start it up, you will need the factory restore disk that came with the computer if one is provide, if not usually with e-machine product, which doesn't provide you with a factory restore disk, you will have to create one yourself using a dvd-r. Usually you will have to go the the emachine recovery/back up management option in your menu programs and use that program to make the factory restore disk, after making that disc, you will need to insert the disc, and shuit down the computer and restart it. It will prompt you to follow direction once the factory restore disk is boot up. Follow the directions and you should be good to go. If there isn't a recovery managment program or a factory restore disk provided, you will need to contact emachine up.... usually they can send you factory restore disk for a small fee.
If you only your files to be copied in the other or any storage disk then you can remove the hard disk of your machine and then attached it to the other functional machine. in there you can browse and copy all the important files. after copying all your files then you can take back the hard drive to your non functional machine and then install new operating system. documentation found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941
tell me if something wrong with your system when applying the solution.
Often full system backups are restored from a bootable set of disks. There should be a message during startup to press something like F8 to change boot device. You could try using this to see if disk one of your backup is a boot disk & will allow you to restore your files.
right-click on "My Computer" then select properties, then System restore.
You now have two choices, expand the % disk space to use for the system restore, or Turn off System Restore, which will wipe out all past restore points.
Do the first one, see if everything goes back to normal. if not, then run disk cleaner foundat: start, programs. accessories, systems tools. This should mkae your Operating system speed up a bit by cleaning out temp files and other clutter. Then defrag, also found in the same folder as Disk cleaner. Next, do a search of your entire hard drive for all files ending in .tmp. delete them all. Those steps combined, should speed things up considerably. Only when everything is working fine again should you turn of system restore and then turn it back on again to get everything cleaned out. This last should be a last resort only, when you are running out of Hard drive space.
