If you purchased a computer with an installation of Microsoft Vista you would normally have a recovery partition. On restart continually press F8 to go to the advanced boot options menu and choose Repair your computer. If it would ask for language preference choose it. Then if it would ask for administrative access go ahead and login. On the next menu choose the image restore for your system. If you have a dell it would be Dell Factory Image Restore. It would depend on the brand.
If you installed vista separately. You would need to boot up your Vista Home Basic Disc. Place the disc in the drive and restart. It would normally load your disc if it is set as primary boot. If it did not enter the BIOS then change your boot sequence to start with the Optical Drive first or you could press the key for boot selection. some would press F10 or F11 for that, but you can find it when you boot up your computer. It would be stated on the starting sequence or the bios splash. Press that key and choose your Optical drive/CD/DVD drive. Then follow the instructions on reinstalling your Vista Home Basic.
So looking for some exciting new themes for your Windows 7.....no need to look here & there, its there hidden in your computer. These themes are particularly based upon certain basic points such as language & location that you choose when you are installing Windows 7. These location-specific themes are found in the personalized Menu. Just give a right click on your desktop anywhere and and you can have access to location that you choose. Still there are certain other themes as well that you can choose rather than choosing the default ones. Its very easy to access these hidden themes in your system...wanna know how to access it.....follow the smple steps below:
1) Go to Start Menu
2) Type this in you search box: C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT.
3) Windows Explorer pops up showing certain locations such as South Africa, Britain, Australia, Canada etc.
4) Click on your choice & selct the wallpaper that you like, or you can install the full theme.....as you like
5) You can Install the particular theme by just giving it a double click.
6) These Installed themes can be seen in "My Themes" in the "Personalization" Panel
And not to forget there are still some official websites from where you can download loads of other themes or wallpapers.....But this can be one of the easiest way to access something hidden in your own system...... So just give it a try..... Good Luck....!!!!!
did you upgrade to vista and then computer won't boot?. your computer may have not met the hardware requirements which lead to this result.
I would try to save the files by taking the hd out and slave/enclosure install it another machine in order to save the files you need to keep, an alternative solution is to do the same with a usb hd and a live knopixx cd.
once you have saved your files out of the current hd, I would try to fresh install of the operating system assuming that you do have hardware to support the installation.
some computer may not provide a boot or recovery cd but a hidden partition to restore your original installation from or some times even repair the installation. find out on your computer manufacturer's website the recovery methods or a way to purchase recovery cd's (if no hidden partition). if you do have a hidden partition, your computer manufacturer should provide a manual online to access that partition at startup.
Hi, No you can't downgrade once Vista business is installed, what i do recommend you do is when Vista business asks you for the product key, if you input "your" key for home basic it should theoretically install home basic for you as most of the install DVD's are multi installers (basic, premium, business and ultimate)
