Perhaps your boot order is toast ? Depending on your system you can try tapping F10, F11 or F12 on startup to get the boot order screen. Once this appears choose the hard drive option to boot from , if that fails then just retry with the CD\DVD drive to boot using the Windows CD.

Try booting from your Vista DVD ,let setup start then running Start Up repair ....

3. If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc.
NoteIf your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check the information that came with your computer. You may need to change your computers BIOS boot order

4. Choose your language settings, and then click Next.
5. Click Repair your computer.
6. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
7. On the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs.

Never nice to see the blue screen. What is the status of your PC, does it still reboot? If so, press F8 after BIOS boot before it start windows. From there go to safe mode and execute a virus scan first.
After this shut down and restart pc again.

The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.

Can't boot up without a boot disk


Your computer has been configured to try to "boot" by loading the Operating System from a network-connected "boot-server". Since you're _NOT_ likely to have such a "boot-server" in your home-network, the error-messages that you get are what are _expected_ when your computer is _NOT_ connected via the Ethernet cable to a 'PXE' (Pre-Boot Execution Environment) boot-server.

Enter BIOS-setup, and disable the "boot from network" option.

PXE-E61 Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F


There are two things that could be a problem. The BIOS settings are corrupted, or the hard drive system has a problem. In order to fix the BIOS problem, at boot up you'd hit F2 (or whatever key is required to enter setup). Get some paper and pencil and go through the BIOS pages and mark down anything that is not a default setting. Find the location to reset the BIOS to default settings and perform this action. This will overwrite your BIOS settings and remove any corrupted data. Now, when you reboot, go back into the setup and set all of the settings to the choices you marked down before.

If this does not fix your problem, your hard drive control system has a problem. It could be as simple as a ribbon cable being loose or as bad as the controller section on the motherboard has gone out. Another possibility is the hard drive has given up and needs to be replaced.

Hello my friend, regarding on your problem it is clearly that your system cannot boot from its kernel part of the Operating system. It is experiencing a software corruption or corrupted files of your operating system. The only solution you can get is to re install your operating system to replace and repair any damage files in your operating system.

Thanks
