Windows 7 - startup repair from vista dvd

Asked By sobriquet on 10-Aug-12 09:57 AM

I am trying to use startup repair from the vista dvd, but I run
into the following problem. The computer has a small HD and there is
little space left (5gb). Normally, I can use the vista dvd and
try to install vista on the drive where I want to run startup repair.
Upon trying to install vista, it will detect the existing OS and offer
an option to repair it instead of a new install.
However, since there is so little space left, I cannot select my main
drive to attempt installing vista there, so it will offer me the repair option.
Is there any other way to get to that setup repair option from the vista

kind regards and thanks in advance for any suggestions.
