whenever i try to use the recovery options menu it displays a message that this version of windows is not supported by recovery options
can i get any help as to why this is happening & how can i repair my windows if it gets spoilt

Did microsoft just drop support to repair their best version of windows available

I think that your Windows XP is somehow conflicting. When my Vista Ultimate installation had a damaged bootmgr file, I was able to use the recovery option despite the fact I also had Vista dual-botting with Windows XP X64.

Actually, when you use a dual boot system with XP, the vista recovery options may not be able to recover your system because the XP is detected.

Did you use Vista & XP on the same partition?

Then maybe Vista recovery disc is unable to detect your vista installation.

I had the same thing when I dual booted Windows 7 & Windows Vista.

The only solution - reinstall vista
