I'm in Christchurch and I am wondering if anyone has a vista repair disk I can purchase.
Vista Home premium x64bit.

I have a Toshiba laptop Satellite L500 It did have a recovery console  but I imaged the drive for a backup and when I put the disk back in the machine I get a windows boot manager error - File windows\system32\winload.exe. Status 0XC000000e, windows failed to start.

I have recovery disks for an Acer machine and I tried to use those but they don't work and I just get errors
