I have a vector of numbers. i.e [ 1 2 3 4] I want to repeat that specific vector a certain number of times, to make a matrix of x rows. It's just the first row repeating itself x times. So it would be [ 1 2 3 4; 1 2 3 4; 1 2 3 4] If x was 3. However I cannot use repmat nor use an iteration

Why can't you use those functions? Is this homework? The trick is pretty easy:
v = [1:5];
v = v(ones(1,1000),:);
where x = 1000 here.

This can be also done using the REPELEM command as follows:
v = [1:4];
