I have an Acer Aspire with Windows XP. My system has crashed while trying to install iPod. Can I use the recovery disc for windows 7 or do I have to download another disc?

iPods usually only get connected ... so were you trying to install iTunes? And, you cannot reboot after a system crash?

Something seems odd here. In any case, a Win7 recovery or repair disk will not fix XP. If you are trying to fix XP's startup, you will need an XP installation disk so you can use one or more of its repair options.

If the system has XP then you can not use anything but an XP Disk to repair it. A Win7 disk is 10 years newer than the OS you have and very little of the code is the same.
