\boot\bcd problem
hi everyone.
I have a very very strange problem.
when I start my 32 bit Vista system on my laptop part way through the boot
process up pops Windows Boot Manager to tell me:-

"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the
cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your windows installation disk and restart your computer.
2. choose your language settings, then click "Next."
3. click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer
manufacturer for assistance>


File: \Boot\BCD

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration
data."
when i put vista recovery dvd in dvdrom it doesn't boot.(first boot order is internal optical drive.)
i tested this dvd on my pc and it booted correctly.
also i did what is told hereWindows Vista Recovery Disc Download — The NeoSmart Files and burned a recovery cd of vista.
i tested that cd on my pc and it booted correctly too but on my laptop
it does not boot and shows the same error message.
i thought the problem was that my laptop could not boot from any cds/dvds
but when i tested an xp cd it booted correctly!!
i suppose it boots every cd\dvd except vista recovery cd\dvd
and i think it has something to do with the "boot\bcd".i think maybe it is corrupt so it does not load vista cd\dvd.
i installed xp on another drive.but my laptop does not recognize vista and i can only use xp.
can i do something with xp to repair vista?
any suggestions?
thanks in advance.
