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.

How to Install Window XP with Vista


If you wish to install Windows XP on a computer that comes with Windows Vista already installed then you will have to create a separate partition on your hard drive to install Windows XP onto. This effectively splits the hard drive into two, and keeps the different versions of Windows separate. To do this you need to open up the Computer Management screen by going to the Start menu and then right-clicking on Computer and selecting Manage.

From the Computer Management screen select Disk Management, right-click on your main hard disk where Windows Vista is installed and then select Shrink Volume. This opens up a window where you can choose how large you want the new drive partition for Windows XP to be. You need to select the size of the new partition carefully, as you will need enough space to be able to install Windows XP successfully (around 10 gigabytes) whilst leaving enough space for Windows Vista. After you have selected the appropriate amount of space click on the Shrink button to begin the process, and once that has completed you should be able to right-click on the new partition (which should be labelled “Unallocated free space”) and select New Simple Volume.

Follow the on-screen instructions to configure the partition, set a drive letter (such as E:\), give it a meaningful name such as “XP”, and then restart your computer. Whilst your computer reboots, access the BIOS and change to boot sequence to boot from your CD/DVD Drive before any other device, insert your Windows XP installation disc and then save and exit from BIOS. You will then be taken to the Windows XP installation program where you should follow the instructions until you come to the screen asking you which partition to install Windows XP to.

Make sure you select the new partition and not the one with Windows Vista installed, as this will cause problems. Once Windows XP has finished installing, you will notice that Windows XP loads up automatically, rather than giving you the choice of which operating system to use. To rectify this insert your Windows Vista installation disc and restart the computer to access the Windows Vista installation program. From the Install Now screen select Repair My Computer, and then select your Windows Vista installation and then Startup Repair. You will now be able to choose which operating system to use when your computer starts up.

The laptop won't load past the welcome screen. I can get it to start up, and go to a start in safe mode etc. but it won't load past the welcome screen.


Hello,

Your computer is experiencing a no boot problem which means that the operating system is corrupted. You can do a start up repair to fix the computer but if it won't fix it then that's the time that you need to reinstall the whole operating system.

It could have been very helpful if you provided us with your operating system so that we can provide you with the exact troubleshooting. However, I just presume that you are using windows VISTA or Windows 7. However, this troubleshooting also works with windows XP.

Before you start the start up repair. You need the Operating System Installation disc from Microsoft.

1. Insert the disc in the dvd/cd drive.
2. Restart the computer.
3. Once you see the "press any key to boot to cd" message. Press any key.
4. It will bring you to a page where it will ask you to INSTALL or to REPAIR. Just click on repair.
5. It might ask you to load the drivers. Just click ok or next.
6. Follow the on-screen instructions.

However, if start up repair won't fix the problem, Clean Reinstallation is the next step. Clean reinstallation will delete everything in your computer including the files, pictures, etc. that you have saved. But you cannot really access them anymore since the computer won't boot up.

I'm am providing you with the links to the tutorial on how to reinstall the operating system.

2. Windows 7 Reinstallation Tutorial
3. Windows Vista Installation Guide

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya.

How to reformat back to windows vista ?


You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.

Computer Asking for disc to be inserted into removable device but the memory card is in the adapter and plugged into the front of my computer


If you are using a digital camera on Windows Vista, and have not loaded service pack 1 (available through Microsoft Update) there is a flaw in the Vista operating system that fails to load the basic USB drivers that are used by most digital cameras, including GE. In November of 2007, Microsoft released a specific patch to solve this problem, the patch can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=51F0EF25-280B-4613-A600-C61224BACD1C&displaylang=en

About vindows vista


You buy a windows Vista installer disc from a website such as this one (Once the page loads navigate to Software>Operating Systems). After you buy the disc insert the CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive. Now start your computer. During startup tell your motherboard to boot from the CD-ROM drive. This is done before the Windows (or whichever operating system you use) loading screen. It will give you a message such as, "Boot From - F2." Press the button associated with the message for the boot sequence (In the above example it would be F2). This is where you select your CD-ROM drive as the primary boot device, then press ENTER to confirm the decision. The motherboard might ask you to press a key on your keyboard to boot from the CD-ROM drive. In this instance press any key on the keyboard and the Windows Operating System Installer will launch.

Let us know if we can assist you further.

Front Page on Windows operating system.


Frontpage will have to be reinstalled or insert your Frontpage cd when asked for it.

Frontpage has been discontinued by Microsoft and they are now using two different web development programs to replace it with. The program won't load onto Vista computers but the server extensions will load.

Thats one program Im going to miss.
