You will be okay to download the files from ClickHere and follow the instructions to burn them to a DVD to use for install/repair. You save the downloaded files to a folder on the pc - they won't start installing over the other op sys.

Note the section 'Download Windows Vista Setup Files' it tells you that your product key - The activation key determines which Vista edition will be installed, so you can use the dvd you make to repair your corrupted one.

Instructions - with screenshots - are at the bottom of the page.
