Are you trying to use the recovery disc in Windows?

Re: How to Install recovery discs?

Start the computer and wait until it has fully booted up, then insert the recovery disc into the drive tray.  Now restart the computer and it should start to boot from the recovery disc.  If this doesn't work you may need to change the boot order in the bios, making the CD/DVD Drive the first bootable device.

 

Hope this helps.
