Can I get to recovery manager from "Run" in Vista?

By glhglh

  1. i have been working on my daughters notebook for a few days. i finally discovered that the hard disk needed to be replaced. i just received the hard disk replacement, but i don't have a recovery disk. i can boot that computer in safe mode, but the start programs has no programs listed.

    does anyone know how i can open the recovery manager from the "run" command. or how to open it another way? Or, where i can find the command file?

    The recovery data was on the failed drive... Reinstall Vista fresh

    Thank you for your help.

    You can create recovery disk from "Recovery Disc Creation", (Start -> type recovery disc creation). If your hard drive fails again, you have back-up in the future.
