I downloaded the 64 bit Vista recovery ISO file & created a DVD. I verified that the files are readable on a known good PC. I made sure that the CD is the first thing to boot on the PC which has the problem by going into the setup. When I install the recovery CD and turn the bad PC on it first promts me to hit any key to boot from the CD. I hit enter and it says "windows downloading files". After this it goes to the microsoft corporation "scrolling wait box" screen for about 10 seconds & then the screen goes black. After a minute or so the cursor shows up on the screen but ... there is no text or menu to select the next step. I do not understand why I am not seeing a welcome screen or some menu to start a repair procedure. Can someone offer a suggestion as to what to do to get to the repair disc menu?
