This is not a Hardware problem It is purely problem of your Operating System Vista Home Basic.

  1. In order to solve this problem enter your PC's setup by pressing "F2" again and again. Some PCs accept "Del" key instead of "F2". You will enter the BIOS Setup. Give your CD/DVD highest priority to boot.
  2. Insert your Vista Home Basic disk in the CD/DVD drive and let it boot.
  3. The computer will ask you some simple information like keyboard layout currency and Language after this you will You will be asked to "Repair" or "Install" Windows Vista.
  4. Vista System Recovery tool will start.
  5. Select Startup repair.
  6. Your Vista will take care of the rest.
If this does not work follow the previous steps from 1 to 4
  1. Select "Command Prompt" instead of "Startup repair"
  2. Type in the Black command prompt Window bootrec/ rebuildbcd and press enter.
  3. You will be asked to enter an entry in the BCD store from Windows Installation path directory. Select "Yes".
Your problem will be solved.

Good Luck!

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.
