Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Trying to install windows vista on a sparcle laptop. disc will not auto-run and need command prompts to make dvd run and load.
That should be a setting in your bios, either that, or you have an upgrade disk.
If you are trying to reinstall from inside windows, press the Windows Key + R, and when the run dialog opens, type cmd and press enter.

Tips for a great answer:
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
