Re: My PC with Vista Home Premium is caught in a loop
One of the updates is not installing properly. The only thing you can really do in this case is to use your Windows Vista installation disk and try to either repair or restore to a previously known good restore point. Hope this helps.

To reformat the windows vista.There are two options to approach the reformat:
Option #1: Boot from the Windows Vista DVD. This is more complicated to do, but it destroys all data and partitions.
Option #2: Re-install Vista without leaving the desktop. This preserves the previous installation in a folder called Windows.old. Not all info is wiped, however, and you can't destroy your partitions.
First, restart your system. When the computer starts to boot, look for an option before you get to the Windows screen that reads: “Setup” “CMOS,” or “Bios”. This varies between manufacturers. For example, on the boot screen, it says: “F2 =Setup”. The option will flash by quickly so be ready for it and react quickly. You may need to reboot a few times to catch it. Once in the BIOS, look for a setting that says "Boot" or "Boot Sequence". You might have to dig through the menus with your keyboard’s arrow keys to locate the setting. In the listed as Boot Sequence. And to navigate to Startup, then Boot, and then Boot Priority Setting. When you find the setting, change your DVD drive so that it occupies the top of the list. The hard drive that contains Windows Vista should be listed as second in the boot list. And put the Windows Vista installation disc in the designated drive. Now, select the Save Changes and Exit option in the BIOS. The computer will restart and will attempt to read the optical drive you just assigned as the first bootable drive. The system will use the Windows Vista disc to boot and the reformat and reinstall process will start. But You will need to reinstall any programs that are not bundled with Windows Vista and reinstate your preferences and personal files after reformatting the computer and reinstalling Vista.
