mate your post is not very clear but out of the gibberish I have deduced that you wish to remove Vista and replace it with XP.

This "old" recovery disk, is it from this computer or a previous brand name pc?

boot into your bios, set your optical drive to first boot device, reboot, that should get you into your recovery disk.
