rpapa,
 
to be more exact; the facility allowing you to create your own recovery cds, this is strongly advised, can be found in Start > Programs > Think Vantage > Create Recovery Media. A set can be created using the function in the lower half of the window, the first disk needs to be a cd and then you can use cds or dvds.

dude,

systems nowadays does not come with any cd's. instead, there is a recovery partition in your hard drive that allows you to either restore you system to factory setting or burn your own recovery cd's.

Does burning your own vista cd from the RR partition  solve what I think is the problem of there apparently being no way to REPAIR vista utilizing whatever's on the RR partition (which seems to offer only completely reinstall)?

The same question had crossed my mind if the recovery CDs also included the repair utilities.  In case the answer is NO, here's a possible solution
