Because DEP involves the ATAPI.sys file. The command uses the boot files from Windows to set the system to never boot with DEP on. The ATAPI.sys file contain drivers to your Hard Drive (more commonly with virtual drives such as Daemon or Alcohol 120%) which has nothing to do with DEP or direct involvement with the boot process.

Lets go over the command:
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx AlwaysOff
---
bcdedit.exe = The program to modify the boot settings for Windows.
/set = Sets a property within the boot file to a specified value (THIS DOES NOT DELETE ANYTHING!)
{current} = the current boot file in use
nx = The DEP property
AlwaysOff = DEP value that states to turn this off completely.

You could've opened up the Vista Recovery Environment and ran System Restore to put that file back with a few clicks and a few minutes. If for some outrageous reason you turned System Restore off only goes to show you have very limited knowledge on how to take care of a computer.

I put that warning in red text there for a reason. If you can't read, that's not my problem.

All I know is that I pasted your command and restarted, but windows would not boot up.

I am not stupid, I have system restore on, but for whatever reason it would not revert to an earlier save point. Neither would the repair utility function properly.

When you drop your attitude, I'll drop mine. You are hardly in any position to be on a high horse.

I used the command myself. Vista 64. It booted up just fine. There is an outside cause for your problem. It wasn't the command.
