I had recently upgraded my Laptop ( LENOVO N100) from XP to Vista Ultimate. The initial installation went fine with Windows activation. All of a sudden when i boot the Laptop, it just hangs. Never even reaches the Login screen. This is a licensed version of Vista i am talking abt... I tried fixing it by running the Repair option in Vista which also failed to boot in. Not even safe mode. So i wipe out the HD and try re-installing Vista but it hangs on the " COMPLETING INSTALLATION" screen. I would really appreciate if anyone can help me out in this case. Thanks in advance!!!!

Re: Windows Vista Bootup problems
Did you (sorry for the underline....not sure how it got here) call Microsoft to have them give you another product key? This is the new procedure now. If you do a reinstall with your Windows Operating System, you have to call in to receive a new product key. This should fix it.

I see that you downgraded from Vista to XP and now you are having issues with installing your drivers.
To be able to get the correct drivers for your system click on the link below this will bring you to a lenovo page for the k200 desktop drivers, on the drivers list thereare 2 types of drviers for Vista and for Windows XP make sure that you download the drivers for XP to avoid any conflict with the installation of your drivers.
i had the problem in xp . i downloaded the xp drivers for toshiba and xp drivers for sata hard disk and xp bootable cd. i burn these 3 using n lite software and atlast all were installed one by one its working 5n now. just try it 4 win 7 as wat i did 4 xp
If you have the OEM Lenovo XP disc are you have to do is insert and
follow the instruction. If you are using off the shelf software, then
switch the BIOS SATA to compatibility mode, and boot from your CD drive
with the disc in it, and format the harddrive followed by installing
the software.( like Windows XP or the Vista)
Hmmm 3000 N100 comes by default with the Intel wireless 3945abg. There is a problem with the XP driver that you can grab off their website I fear, that is probably why it worked in vista, but not in xp. Had a lot of users coming to me with this issue
That one should be the most up to date driver. Please get back to me if this resolved the issue or not. If not, then tell me if you see even the available wireless networks or not at all. Does the network card show up fine in the device manager or do you got any marks on it like a red cross or a question mark?
you can upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista(ultimate, premium, home, business.......), you have to buy a Windows Vista CD and install a fresh copy or format.
Some Minimum Requirements:
i) Min 2GB RAM or atleast 1GB RAM(if you have>1GB RAM installation of Windows Vista will not continue)
II) External Graphic Card. for some versions of Windows Vista(to run Aero Interface, special feature only in some versions of Windows Vista)
"Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor" is a software from Microsoft which you can download from internet, this can help you determine which features and edition of Windows Vista will run on your computer.
i.e., when u load this software on windows xp it will suggest which upgrade version of windows vista will suit your system(based on you system configuration. or hardware components.) and then you can install the upgraded version of windows xp(mostly windows vista home,.........)
