Re: Re installed VISTA
Hi! Was the initial install an upgrade or New? if you upgraded then the 2 operating systems showing are 1. Windows old( Possibly Xp?) or 2. Vista. It is impossible I think to load 2 operating systems simultaneously. (Windows usually interrupts Boot)
Try turning of P.c. with Vista Cd in drive, Turn on and hopefully you should get message Press any Key to boot from C.d. hit any key. Windows will load files then key in your locality and keyboard preferences then it should ask you if fresh install or Repair. Try the repair option.
Please reinstall vista although this time look at the bottom screen at the page it lets you chose the installation destination and you'll see Drive Manager where you could erase/delete the partitions you've got on your hard drive and then choose the empty space where windows vista will recreate and reformat the drive automatically then install vista for you.

if your asking to install XP on top of vista.. if you do not like vista, then ur listening to your friends who have no idea what their talking about because its awesome and when windows 7 comes out youll be stunned...this is verry easy if you have XP disc ready, restart your computer you need to wipe ur hard drive to get rid of the old operating system, first save any thing you want thus wiping hard drive saves nothing.... techniquly its still there but ya....put in disc of XP and run the disc to install XP,. ACTIVATE IT AND WALA
Is it ok if your files get lost forever? If it is then what you have to do is when it says if you want to partition a hard drive space, you delete the biggest parition (which wipes any and all vista and files of the computer.) Then it will ask you which partition you want use. Use the one you just deleted, whhich is the biggest one. It will ask you to format it and stuff, just go with it. Then you will have XP instead of Vista! (Warning: I warned you above that this way will wipe of vista and any other files-documents-photos-everything off your comptuer)
Take out the hard disk put it on the externaslcase hard disk and format the disk wipe all data from it , and chek the bios seting, put the bios on default seting than you will be able to instal wich OS you want. chek if you have enogh ram for vista , if no put XP not vista. wen you will have more than 1GB put vista.

OK YOU NEED A DISK WIPE/ HARD DRIVE WIPE THERE ARE A TONE OF THEM ON EBAY FOR GOOD PRICES BUT MAKESHURE THAT YOU GET THE ONES ON DISK NOT A DOWNLOAD OR USE THE INSTAL DISK FROM THE WIN VISTA AND FOLOW THE STEPS AS BOOT FROM THE DISK AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS UNTILL YOU GET TO THE PARTITION SPOT, THERE YOU JUST NEED TO DEL THE PARTITION AND THEN CLOSE THE INSTAL, EJECT THE DISK , REBOOT , AND BOOT FROM YOUR WIN XP DISK AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM THERE ON
SEE WINDOWS WONT LET YOU INSTALL A PREVIOUS VERSION OF ITS SELF BUT I WOULD USE A WIPE DISK SO YOU DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANY "BLADING" OF DATA
open up your volume toolbar, advanced and make sure that your mic is not muted, turned down or that your mic +20 boost is turned off. You can always uninstall sound drivers and have vista find them again on boot up, but Vista is such a new platform that your mic hardware may not be compatible. Good luck, I have never had good results with the windows mic.
