Vista Home Basic Recovery

  1. Hello all,

    I have a Medion Pink Notebook which is refusing to boot into Vista and will not even reach the point from which I can get to safe mode

    There is a problem with the boot sector on the HDD which cannot be auto repaired.

    A disk that came with the machine is supposed to cover all eventualities but will not install windows over the top of the current installation.

    As far as I can see Im left with only one option. I can access a dos prompt and I know which drive/partition the recovery image is on.

    Is there anyway I can kick off this process from DOS?

    Many Thanks
