I need find a free windows vista home premium disk for my laptop


Download the Windows Vista startup disk .ISO file. A .ISO file is a "disk image" file, meaning that it is a compressed archive of all the files that would normally be found on a CD contained in one simple file. Microsoft does not provide users with an official Windows Vista startup disk. Because of this, a number of services online provide their own for users free of charge. Download the .ISO (see Below) file to your computer's desktop. http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/download-windows-vista-x64-recovery-disc/ Put a blank DVD in your computer's DVD writer. Open your DVD burning program. As long as your program can burn .ISO files, you can use any software you'd like. Burn the .ISO file to a DVD by selecting the "File" menu, clicking on "Open" and locating the .ISO file from your hard drive. Next, click the "Burn" button in your DVD burning software and the files contained in the .ISO will be burned to the disk. Label your Windows Vista startup disk with a pen or marker and keep it in a place where you won't lose it. If your computer is damaged to the point where you would need a startup disk, you won't be able to use your computer to make one. It is very important that you do not lose this disk.

Windows startup does not complete.


Hi.
If The BIOS is showing initial splash screen, and completing POST test correctly, but Windows Startup does not complete, and you are in one of the following situations:

  • You get a black screen with a cursor blinking.
  • You get a black screen with test or command prompt.
  • You have a blue screen with a warning message.
  • Windows keep restarting.
  • Windows is freezing.


Any of the condition described must occur before getting to login screen or to Windows desktop, or the problem is other than the one described here.

If you get a message saying Operative system not found you may also be in same situation. Only in that case the disk may also be physically damaged, and you may have lost your data, or disk may need replacement.


The conditions above usually tell us that the Windows system files needed for Startup are corrupted.
Windows cannot load the files anymore and will hang on with the cursor blinking.
When this happens you need to reinstall the operative system.

To start you can try loading the system in safe mode, by pressing F8 on Startup.

If the computer is starting in safe mode, try doing a system restore to a recent date before the problem started. This will be faster than installing a fresh system, and most of your settings will be preserved.

You may find out that when the system does not load, most computer will not even start in safe mode.

Check also that there is no CD, DVD or floppy inside the computer, also disconnect any connected USB device, apart mouse and keyboard, and attempt starting the computer again.

If all that does not work, then you will need to reinstall Windows.

Installing Windows is not a complicate operation, all you need is the computer recovery disk, or a Windows install disk valid for the licence number printed on the Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity sticker.

If you use a recovery disk, remember to choose partial recovery, so that the original data contained in the hard disk won't be deleted.

Using Windows generic disk you will need to choose Update Recovery if asked, install the system on top of the same directory (eg: C:Windows), and you will also need to choose Leave System File Intact, when asked by Windows setup.
Using a Windows generic disk you may also need to install additional drivers, that usually are available for download from the manufacturer website.
Even choosing a partial recovery , or an update install, some of the installed software may be affected, and may need a fresh setup.
Another way to proceed is installing a copy of windows into a different folder (eg. C:/Windows000), and choosing to leave system file untouched.
This will reinstall system files hosted in root folder, and sometimes may bring back to life the old system.
In that case you will be asked what system to start from Windows boot manager on Startup, your old system will be the second one.

Using this method is better to remove the new installation Startup from boot manager after installing and testing that the old system is back at work. This is done editing the system hidden file Startup.Ini, hosted in root folder. The file is a text file.

If you have important data inside the hard disk, it is always advisable to copy all data onto an external media. Even if the procedures described normally do not delete your data, when doing maintenance on a computer there is always the chance to loose data.
If the computer is not starting because of a system problem, the data can only be recovered using a boot disk, or physically removing the hard disk drive from computer, and connecting it to a different computer (an external enclosure may help).


This same instructions broadly apply to all recent Windows operative system, Windows seven setup is slightly different from the procedure described here.

Istalling windows


Because you have a dual boot system, you have two 'C' drives, which in fact is a good idea if you get a system failure on the drive you are using, you can select the other and still view any files on the other drive through my computer.

f using XP, right click my computer, then properties, then click advanced tab, then startup and recovery listing click settings, at the top system startup, select the default operating system, then click EDIT button, then delete the value that points to the other hard drive more than likely listed as disc1, disk 0 will be the one you have connected as master boot hard drive
