That should work as long as the PC recognizes the stick.

You're welcome, BTW!

You should be using the Vista Repair CD which Barefoot linked to earlier. Burn it using ImgBurn at 4x speed to know it will boot and work.

If this fails, you can attempt to rescue either the partition or your data using Paragon Rescue CD. Rescue Kit Free Edition | PARAGON Software Group - free partition software, hard disk partitioning
