How To Fix Your Unbootable Vista After Removing Acronis Software

  1. Insert your Windows Vista DVD and boot up to the DVD boot menu.
  2. Press OK to get past the language settings.
  3. Choose Repair Computer.
  4. Choose cancel if asked to run System Restore.
  5. At the menu, choose Command Prompt. This will put you on a command line in the WinRE.
  6. Enter "regedit" without the quotes.
  7. Highlight HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKLM) in the left pane.
  8. Go to the File menu and choose Load Hive.
  9. In the source box, navigate to the drive where Vista is installed (C: in my case). Drill down to C:\Windows\System32\Config. Choose the "System" file (with no extension). Hit OK.
  10. In the next window name the hive "Broken System" without the quotes.
  11. Hit the plus next to HKLM. You will see a key named " Broken System".
  12. Drill down to HKLM\Broken System\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
  13. Look in the right pane for an Upper Filters line. If you see "snapman" without the quotes, you need to delete it.
  14. Only delete snapman by using the Modify on the Edit menu entry. Make sure you do not delete any other Upper Filters in the list.
  15. You should also check HKLM\Remote System\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{71A27CDD-812A-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F} for Upper Filter entries. If you see "snapman" remove it from there as well.
  16. Now unload the Remote System hive. Highlight it in the left pane. Go to the File menu and choose Unload Hive. This will save the changes in the Vista registry.
  17. Exit the command prompt and hit Restart.

I want 2 reset my entire dell d630 laptop How do I do this I don't have any of the passwords


Hey,

I hope when you say that you wish to reset the system you mean you need to go to the factory settings. If you wish to go to the factory settings and even if you do not remember the password, there is still a way to do it. But in order to do it you need to have the OS disc from Dell. You have one, you can perform the following steps. It works for Vista:

HOW TO RESTORE DELL LAPTOP TO FACTORY SETTINGS USING DELL OPERATING SYSTEM WINDOWS VISTA DVD
1. Insert the Dell Windows Vista DVD into the DVD drive, and then restart the computer. 2. During the startup process, repeatedly press <F12>. 3. In the Boot Device Menu, press the <Down Arrow> to select *Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive, and then press <Enter>. If the Boot Device Menu does not appear, restart the computer. (You might not get Onboard or USB CD-rom Drive in that case if you get any option that says anything about CD or DVD, select that option) 4. When the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD screen appears, immediately press any key to start the computer from the Windows Vista DVD. For example, immediately press the <Spacebar> when the Press any key to boot from CD or DVD screen appears. If you do not press a key immediately, the computer may not start from the Windows Vista DVD to do image restore. Instead, the computer may try to start the currently-installed copy of Windows Vista operating system. If this situation occurs, restart the computer, and then repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. When Windows Vista starts from the Windows Vista DVD, other screens may appear during the startup process. If other screens appear, accept the default options, and then continue to the language settings screen.
6. On the language settings screen, click the appropriate language in the Language to install list, click the appropriate time and currency format in the Time and currency format list, click the appropriate keyboard layout to use in the Keyboard or input method list, and then click Next. 7. On the lower-left corner of the Install now screen, click Repair your computer.
8. If the Windows Vista Setup program detects any problems on the computer, click No when the program displays the following message:
Windows found problems with your computer's startup options.
Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer? 9. In the System Recovery Options window, under Operating System, click Windows Vista (TM) Version, even if this entry is already selected, and then click Next to display the Choose a recovery tool window. 10. Click on Command Prompt 11. Type path d:\windows;d:\windows\system32 and press <ENTER> key 12. Type d: and press <ENTER> key 13. Type cd tools and press <ENTER> key 14. Type PCRestore and press the <ENTER> key and Dell Factory Image Restore window will appear 15. Click on Next and Confirm Data Deletion dialog will appear 16.Place a check mark beside "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" for the final confirmation & click on Next when ready The restoration process takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes; the format bar will run back and forth (See Image 17.
