    I downloaded, and burned the img file for Vista x64 But I get the Error Code: 0x80070002 and cannot read from d:\sources\install.wim file is missing.


    To download and burn this disk I followed the instructions from this site. Have I done something wrong? Up until this stage everything seems to have worked okay.

    Any help appreciated.

    You must have downloaded the x86 CD and not the x64 one... How big is the file?

    The size is 148MB and it contains 2 folders-boot and sources, and a bootmgr file. I downloaded the x64 torrent file from http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/download-windows-vista-x64-recovery-disc/ and followed the instructions below. I did the x64 because the Lenovo rescue and recovery screen's system information told me that the OS was the x64 version.

    The x86 didn't work either. I can get to command prompt so I was wondering if there is a way to boot from there?
