Error can not open recovery.dat

I have recently installed windows 7 and once it finished i restarted my computer than it booted into vista (i dont know how) then it was loading then the screen had big letters in red that said ERROR. at the top it said can not open C:/recovery.dat or something like that. I tried booting into safe mode and it didn't work. I dont have the cd anymore (parents thought it was junk and dont know anything about computers) and i dont know what to do and im not the best with computers. Please help
