What is a Windows Vista boot disk?

Windows Vista boot disk is a kind of removable media, like a CD or a floppy disk, which contains the startup files that can be used to boot your Windows Vista. There are those startup files stored on your computer, too. But if those startup files are broken or damaged, and your Vista can't boot up, you can use this boot CD for Vista to start your computer.
