Try rebooting the system.
If possible, use the BIOS to boot through the CD.
If that works, the Windows Vista Installation screen would come up, and then you would have the repair install option. IF not:

Before windows loads, press F8 and load the system on Safe Mode.
Then, try to load the windows setup CD and try the repair install option.
If none of that works, perhaps your windows defender is on, preventing the system from using protected files.
If that is the case, go to Control Panel > Windows Defender > Disable.
Don't forget to put it back on once finished.

I want to install a new windows vista in this computer


    Before installing any operating system on your computer it is extremely important to make sure your system is compatible with the type of OS you are installing. By this I mean making sure your hard drive, RAM memory, and processor speed are at least the minimum required for the OS to work properly this can be accomplished if using window's vista by visiting Microsoft's website or consulting the documentation that came with your CD or DVD copy of Vista.

    When upgrading from a previous version of Windows you can simply insert the Vista disk into your computers drive and the process should start by its self after a moment or two however if the program fails to launch by its self you can force it to begin by going to START>RUN and then typing in (your drive letter followed by: \setup.exe) and then press OK
    This will most certainly start the process and you should see a screen that gives you the option to install now go ahead and click ok to start the install. You then may be prompted to update now which you can do or chose to do later it is totally up to you.

    Now all that is left to do is the actual install again if you are performing an upgrade you should be able to select upgrade when the Which type of install would you like to perform screen appears and Window's will upgrade to the Vista version and you can then follow the directions outlined by the documentation that accompanied your CD or DVD copy of Vista. If however you wish to perform a clean installation on a computer running an earlier version of Window's you can start the setup portion as I outlined above with the only difference being that when the Which type of installation would you like to perform screen appears you are going to chose Custom (advanced) and then follow the instructions outlined by the documentation. For those installing an operating system on their machine for the first time meaning that there is no existing OS on the machine you will have to perform the instillation a little differently than outlined above. You will need to insert vista into your drive and then restart your machine so that the computer will boot from the vista disk. Once the PC is restarted you should see a message telling you to press any key to boot from disk press any key and then go through the instillation process by again following the documentation.
  4. 4 FINALLY

    If vista is working properly after the install then you have completed the process correctly and there is nothing left to do however if you experience any difficulty with the instillation you can always go to the troubleshooting section and try to troubleshoot the problem. If you still have difficulty contact Microsoft and they should be able to Help.please comment on this product is it is helpful

Unable to ping my ISP gateway

This could be an issue having to do with the installed drivers for your network adapter. XP and Vista use different drivers, even though the hardware is the same...Take a look through this tutorial and make sure all your network hardware has vista drivers installed. Also possibly helpful would be a read through of this vista help site...
I would start there, and if you need further assistance after making sure you have the correct drivers for vista, write back and we'll be happy to help you sort it out...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Then start the installation.

Good Luck.
