I need to run vista recovery but its boot loader is destoryed. The only way to run reovery seems to be burning a temporary DVD from base.wim and boot.wim taken from vista recovery partition. How can I do this without having any vista installation or DVD? I can dowload anything but ony from legitimate sources (e.g. not torrents etc). Thank you in advance.

You can accomplish this using Microsofts Windows Automated Installation kit (WAIK). There's a tutorial here how to go about creating a bootable dvd that you can use to repair your computer.
