HOW CAN I RECOVER MY MICROSOFT WINDOWS VISTA HOME BASIC EDITION OPERATING SYSTEM?


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.

Computer wont boot running vista dont have boot cd to repair tried the startup repair wont work i dont have a back up either


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.

good luck!

Windows Vista business & Home Basic


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)

See if that helps you.

Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.
