You use the Windows Complete PC Restore program in the Windows Recovery Environment utility on the Windows Vista installation disc. You try to restore a computer from a Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore image. Then, you receive the following error message:
System Recovery Option
This version of System Recovery Options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair. 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.
