I have just downloaded the Vista repair disc. Please tell me which I have to burn to disc. The compressed files? Do I extract the files and then burn these? There is only a 2k disk image file in [BOOT] called Bootable_No Emulation.
Don't extract anything.
If you are seeing the download as anything other than a straight .ISO then its the fault of the way you have your system configured.
You have probably allowed third party software (like WinRAR or something similar) to grab the filetype association and maybe have allowed the unhelpful suppression of known filetypes which MS persist in defaulting in their OSs.
With folder options set thus you should see the download for what it is. A single iso file.
Just burn it as it arrived as one complete entity.
