AFAIK there is no option fix mbr or fix boot in Vista like in Xp.You have to chose Boot Repair option.Those commands are replaced by GUI:)
Why haven't you installed Vista?

Boot up from Vista Installation DVD and select Repair your Computer.(its below Install Icon). Select Windows Vista and select Command Prompt.
Execute this
Code:
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
Close command prompt window and restart.
