System Recovery Option - This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to Repair
By  Super Admin  | Published  12/10/2006 | Windows Vista Troubleshooting Page 5 | Rating:
Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of Windows.

This error may occur if you use the 32-bit version of the Windows Vista installation disc to run the Complete PC Restore program on a computer that is running the 64-bit version of Windows Vista. By default, the 64-bit operating system is selected in the list of installed operating systems.

To work around this behavior, on the Select operating system page, select the blank space in the list under the Windows Vista operating system, and then click Next.

    The word "you" is used only once in the above tip. It is not offensive nor is it unprofessional--especially compared to the grammar used routinely by many who post on the internet. If one makes an effort to attack another's use of language one should be exceedingly careful doing so. For instance the omission of a comma prior to the conjuction in the very sentence of attack might be considered not only ironic but also more offensive than the word choice of the original author. The sentence in question should read: "This advice worked but I don't like the English." Please note the appropriate use of punctuation. I appreciate the effort the author put forward to make this information available which was useful for recovery from a partially failed installation of Windows Server 2008. Therefore I would like to add that one may additionally use this solution for said operating system. I hope my use of the English language within this post is satisfactory.

    This advice worked but I don't like the English. Avoiding use of the personal pronoun would be more professional.

    Thanks! You saved my day. @comment 2: go somewhere else if you don't like the English in this free tip. How about BUYING some "expert" help if professional language is what you're after.

    Wow. That has to be the stupidest thing I have ever seen M do. I was able to click nothing (!!) and get the correct page with option to repair. Alas the repair still did not work. Thanks to the author anyhow for the tip!

    This worked great. Selecting the blank area got me to the next screen which allowed me to run "rstrui.exe /OFFLINE:C:Windows" at a command prompt. After a few minutes the system restore screen appeared and I was able to restore to a previous point in time.

    Does not work when you're never given the option to select an OS.

    Thanks! Using this workaround I was able to use the Recovery Console's bootrec.exe to fix my Windows 7 64-bit stuck-at-blinking-cursor issue. I feel like it's really stupid of Microsoft that we even have to use a workaround like this though... especially since I was trying to repair my installation with the exact same disc I installed from.
