Question about Acer Aspire T690 (AST690UP820A) PC Desktop
It is a kind of mess. i have to explain it from begaining.
computer with windows vista.
1) first i tried to install microsoft office 2000 (the only micro-office i have), after installed it, the windows doesn't work properly (something like "...windows stop working..... it will be closed...."). i uninstall it. everything back to normal, as usual.
2)because i need to use micro offce software, i was thinking i can install windows XP, so i installed windows xp on my shrunk drive D. but after i installed XP, i canot access to my old information on my vista, i even canot access to internet. i used my vista restore CD to restore my vista, but somehow i didn't get back to drive c (which is original vista on). it seems to just treat me as another user.
3)i was urge to fix my computer. i think i made another big mistake: i uninstalled windows XP, even clean the partition.
now i only can use my vista as a user, i cannot change anything. on the control panel, most items when i click it will pop up like "windows conn't access the specified device, path, or file, you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the file"
and now when i start my computer, there is always ask you something like ".... which operation system do you want to open with: 1, early version windows. 2, vista home premium.
anyone can help me with this.
many thanks inadvance.
You have done big mistake that's why you are getting problem.
1)Regarding installation of win XP over windows vista.
You have to install first lower version and then higher version i.e. you should install first win xp and then windows vista. But vice-versa you can't do it.
So my suggestion is that format your c drive then install win XP
after installation win XP install win vista.
2) which operation system do you want to open .
You can remove it using windows tweak utility software wich is freely available on most of the website. Also you can manually edit it.
For manually do this.( i m not sure about windows vista it is available or not)
right click on my computer->click on Advanced Tab->setup and recovery framework click on settings->click on Edit button
You will see the boot.ini file. You can remove the windows XP line from that file.
