Question about PC Desktops
You may need to change the boot order in your bios so it starts the CD drive first. You will need to use your manual to do this because there are different bios's. When Vista boots hit repair and it should repair it. Are you, or, were you dual booting your computer with Linux or XP? This can sometimes cause that error.

The problem you have is with the system boot files. There is a corrupt file and that is stopping the system from booting.
Press F8 as the system starts up, that will let you into the special boot menu and hopefully will give you the option of repairing your system. The timing can be quite tricky as there is only a very short time window. Trying a few times should get it.
Hope that helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Warning - Formatting hard drive information does not permanently erase the data. Even after a computer has been formatted, deleted files can be easily recovered. If you want to permanently wipe your hard drive by completely overwritting hard drive data, check out WipeDrive.
To format your hard disk during Windows Vista installation, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using the Windows Vista installation disc or USB flash drive.
