I need to run System Recovery in Vista, but its boot loader is destroyed. The only way to run System Recovery seems to be to burn a temporary DVD from the base.wim and boot.wim taken from Vista's recovery partition.

How can I do this without having any Vista installation or DVD? I can download anything, but only from legitimate sources (e.g. not torrents, etc).


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.
