Your DVD should be bootable -- that is, restart and it should boot off DVD. If in fact you have an installable copy of Vista, and you have a working DVD drive.

If those two answers are correct, restart your computer and immediately figure out how to get into the BIOS -- Normally delete, F1, F2 or F10. Hit 'em all real quick and keep trying, looking also for something like "To enter into system configuration, hit ..."

There should be an entry for boot preference. Just make sure CD/DVD/removable media/ATAPI drives are listed before your hard drive.

Having had my sons laptop crash with the message bootmng missing he installed windows vista for a medion laptop on his toshiba C650 laptop but now i have read that we could have it with original software...


if you have the windows vista dvd then put it in, boot from it but when it comes to install step , check for the REPAIR SYSTEM option at the bottom,
select that option and choose -> startup repair.
follow onscreen steps and wait for system reboot.
if everything goes fine it will start but if this doesn't work then you'll be needed to reinstall the whole OS..

How do i uninstall windows vista and making a clean dard drive


You would need a operating sytem cd/dvd (windows xp\windows 7) and a windows COA key. Select your bios to boot from cd\dvd player. Insert the new cd of a different operating system into the drive and restart the computer. It should say press any key to start from cd. Press any key and proceed. You will get to an option to format and install. Format the drive Probably marked C:. This will wipe out the drive and install a fresh copy of whatever OS cd you booted from. Good Luck.

Unable to install XP in CQ60-104tu compaq Presario


You may find that if you insert a blank CD instead of DVD you have more luck (the image you have created is a CD image not a DVD image). Another tip is that you should not copy the ISO image to CD but using Nero burn image to disk. Let me know if you need more help.

Cannot install Windows XP,Vista on Compaq Laptop(FreeDos) V3607TU.


I have two solutions for this problem. the first one is to change the bios settings. the solution is here:  http://techrena.blogspot.com/2008/10/how-to-install-your-own-wndows-xp-in-hp.html
but for some laptops this setting is not available. so you can try another solution i.e. integrate the SATA drivers in your windows XP cd. this solution is here: http://techrena.blogspot.com/2009/01/integrate-your-own-drivers-or.html
