w7 and Vista recovery ???

Hi gang, i have a question: Can you use a Vista Ultimate disk to boot into a Windows 7 recovery partition. What i am attempting is to fix MBR in windows 7 but i don't have a Windows 7 disk and no one i know has one. My 7 wont boot at all but it should with a recovery disk. So can i use the Vista disk to boot to 7's recovery options ????

Thanks for any help !
