    Hello dude,

    => If you can boot with safe mode. You can recover data by go to the following Path,

    Start -> Control Panel -> View by Small icons -> (All Control Panel items) -> Recovery

    1) Open System Restore :

    This is for Restoring your system by previous good working stage.

    2) Advance Recovery Methods :

    If you already create a system image use this for recover your data.

    => If you can't boot with safe mode Re-install your windows in that specific drive.

    Note : Your windows may attack by virus. Try to install good antivirus, and also clean up your PC by Registry Cleaners.

    Good Luck.,

    hi there,
    in order to resolve your problem just do the following:
    Follow these easy step by step togoto the Recovery Console from the F8 boot menu:
    • Restart the computer.

    • After the start-up message appears, press the F8 key.

      You must press F8 before Windows starts.
    • Choose the option Repair Your Computer.
      At this point, your computer may start a custom recovery program, such as the Rescue and Recovery tool available on Lenovo PCs. If so, you should either attempt to access the Recovery Console by using this utility.
    • Click the Next button.
      You may be prompted to choose a keyboard layout and language. You usually have no need to change these options.

    • Choose your username.
      If you know the administratorís password, you can choose Administrator. The password should be the same as on your own user account, though it may not be.

      Select only an account that has administrator access.
    • Type your password and click OK.
      A window appears on the screen, listing several repair and recovery options and tools. Your PC may not have these same options. For example, Dell Factory Image Restore appears only on Dell computers. (On other computers, you may find the Recovery Manager option, which is pretty much the same thing.)

    • Choose the option Command Prompt.

      The command prompt window opens. Youíre now ready to use the Recovery Console commands.
    • When youíre done using the command prompt, close its window.
    • Choose the option Restart from the System Recovery Options window.
      The computer restarts.
    In some cases, the preceding steps may not get you to the Recovery Console. You may instead find a special recovery program or another utility. Donít give up! Itís still possible to access the Recovery Console by using a Windows installation or update disc or the recovery disc that came with your computer. Follow these steps:


    • Insert the Windows or system recovery disc into your PCís optical drive.
    • Restart the computer.
    • Choose the option to boot from the CD or DVD.
    • Work your way through the installation process until you find the option Repair Your Computer.
      Donít worry: Nothing is changed on your computer until you choose to reinstall Windows. But youíre not doing that.
    • Press the R key to choose the option Repair Your Computer.
    • If prompted, donít choose to repair any start-up or boot issues or errors.
      You can return to fix any errors later.
    • Choose the Windows Vista installation from the list.
    • Click the Next button.
      The System Recovery Options window appears.
    • Choose the Command Prompt option.
      Say hello to the Recovery Console.

    • When youíre done using the command prompt, close its window.
    • Choose the option Restart from the System Recovery Options window.
      The computer restarts.
      hope this will help.....

    If you have a Windows installation disc:
    • Insert the installation disc.
    • Restart your computer.
      Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Lock button , and then click Restart.
    • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.

      • Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
      • Click Repair your computer.
      • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
      • On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.

      If your computer has preinstalled recovery options:

      • Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
        Click the Start button , click the arrow next to the Lock button , and then click Restart.
      • Do one of the following:
        • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
        • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
      • On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu as a preinstalled recovery option.)
      • Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
      • Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
      • On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.

    Re: How to go into Recovery Mode with Windows Vista?

    Hi,

    If the Windows operating system is creating a great displeasure for you , you should first boot in safe mode.

    if that is successfull, you can add/remove a lot of components, drivers and programs from there.

    But if that safe mode boot fails then Recovery Mode is inevitable.

    Insert the Rescue Diskette in the optical drive and the system will run automatically and an interactive session will begin.

    Proper answering of the questions asked can save the system from the trouble it was in.

    Thanks.
