Is it the Microsoft Vista Recovery disc that uses the Win PE 2.0 environment to give acess to the Recovery Center? If so it should work, there are only two versions - x86 and x64.

I'm not aware of any version specific recovery discs, but that doesn't mean there aren't any.

Im not sure about Win PE 2.0, but the laptop Im about to work on is running Home premium x86 and my copy of ultimate is also x86.

I think it'll be fine too.

I have seen some OEM's provide 'recovery discs' that actually reimage the computer to the original delivered install state, so using that from one machine to another may not be the best solution.

Thanks guys. It appears that the laptop HDD is dead. I tried doing repairs with Vista it kept getting BSOD. When I tried booting in safemode it kept stopping at crcdisk.sys. I even tried running the WinXP PE 2.0 repair recovery console and it says no disk could be found. Tried connecting the HDD to a different pc. Same symptoms. So its a dead HDD.
