Windows Vista will not enter Recovery mode

#1
Getting Stop:0x0000C1F5 error, tried to run windows vista repair from the disk that came from gateway and then tried the download from NeoSmart. Nothing will work, it boots from the cd says it installing windows files and then bliinking cursor in top left hand corner. Never gives the option to repair, tries to boot again to windows and I get the blue screen with the stop error.

Delete all the partitions from Ubuntu, than try re-installing Windows with your recovery set. If thats not working you'll need to contact Gateway.

Hmmm, they say in the first article to reformat and install, and than in the second they say just start up with a Windows 7 disc and code well run that automatically fixes the corrupted files. Either way you haft to have a different version of Windows install media to get around the problem, such a pain...
