I re installed vista I meant to put it in the OS system but instead I re
installed in the recovery D. The problem is that now I have two
operating system when I boot up. I tried to remove vista from the
recovery area says I'm not authorized. Any one know How I can remove
vista from the recovery?

Hi,

Reinstall to C:\, then use the boot tab of msconfig to remove the unneeded
entry to load the unwanted installation on D:\. I'm surprised it fit there,
as most recovery volumes do not possess adequate space to support an
installation.
