since windows 95 - the recovery disk has been the setup media..

Unless you made custom media

A Recovery Disc is usually supplied by the manufacturer and provides a way for you to put your computer back to the state it was in when you first bought it. Same is true for a recovery partition.

Installation media comes from Microsoft and does not have any of the add-ons manufacturers often include, most of which are useless. Installation media allows you to repair a computer or install a new instance of the operating system.
