Will not start, windows says it starting but never do . don't have recovery disk


Run the Check Disk Utility with your Vista Ultimate disk.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

How to fix BOOTMGR is missing" Error While Trying to Boot Windows Vista


If your Windows Vista computer has encountered the dreaded “BOOTMGR is missing” error, you aren’t alone. If the problem isn’t hardware related you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a Windows Vista DVD handy.
If you don’t have one, you can create a Windows Vista repair disk using our guide

Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt

You should see a link in the lower left-hand side for “Repair your computer

The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory. If there’s more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again

Click the first link for “Startup Repair

Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead, and use the following command to fix the boot options only:
bootrec /fixboot

How to Reset Windows Vista Administrator Password with Three Simple Methods?


Have you ever experienced Windows Vista administrator password forgot? Absolutely, there is nothing worse than forgot your Windows admin password when you have a great deal of work to do on your PC. Even though you can enter your computer with a standard user account, you still could not download anything and install programs on your PC. Therefore, how to reset or recover Windows Vista administrator password efficiently?

Here we will show the top three easy and efficient Windows Vista admin password recovery methods to anyone who have Windows Vista admin password forgotten issues.

Method 1: Reset Windows Vista administrator password on safe mode

Preparation Time: about 10 minutes
Pros: Simple and do not need third party tools
Cons: Need an available admin account on your Vista PC

You can reset Vista administrator password on command prompt with an available admin account to enter safe mode first. If you have another Windows Vista admin account, try these steps below:

Step 1: Press F8 when your Windows Vista PC is booting. You will come to the Advanced Boot Options. Then choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press Enter.

Step 2: Enter safe mode with an available admin account.

Step 3: Type "net user" and press Enter. The command prompt will show you all accounts on the Windows Vista PC.

Step 4: Type "net user Paul 123" (Paul is the locked admin account's name and 123 is the new password) and press Enter. Now you have successfully created a new password on the locked admin account.

Step 5: Type "shutdown -r -t 00" and press Enter.

Your Windows Vista PC should be rebooted automatically and then you can logon Windows Vista with the new password.

Method 2: Recover Windows Vista administrator password with freeware

Preparation Time: More than 30 minutes

Cons: The freeware should not work if the password is too long

Ophcrack is freeware for Windows password recovery. This software can help you to recover your forgotten Windows Vista admin password. So that you can regain access your admin account without changing the password.

Ophcrack is used to create a Windows password recovery disk. You need to boot your computer from the disk to recover your password. You can follow these easy steps:

Step 2: Burn a Windows password recovery disk with the freeware

Step 3: Recover the forgotten Windows Vista admin password with the disk

You can logon Windows Vista with the old password now.

Method 3: Reset Windows Vista administrator password with shareware

Preparation Time: less than 10 minutes
Pros: Fast and 100% reset the forgotten password
Cons: Not free

Windows Login Recovery is easy-to-use shareware to reset forgotten Windows password, including administrator password and other standard users' passwords.

Unlike Ophcrack, Windows Login Recovery is designed to reset the forgotten password. No matter how long and how complicated the password is, this software can 100% reset the forgotten password in few minutes. All you need to do is just three steps:

Step 1: Download Windows Login Recovery

You need to access the BIOS - press F1 or F2 (depending on the version)during the start of the desktop - and in there you must modify the boot order: put the cd first then the had disk second. Save the change, reboot, insert the Vista disk and reboot once more - the disk will be loaded.

How do i reboot my windows visat without the reboot disc?


Is this a trick question? Or are you serious? You reboot by shuting it off and turning it back on. or using the ctrl,alt, and delete buttons at the same time.
You can try this too.
Using the F8 Method
  1. Restart your computer.
  2. When the computer starts you will see your computer's hardware being listed. When you see this information start to gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with the Windows Vista Advanced Boot Options.
  3. Select the Safe Mode option using the arrow keys.
  4. Then press the enter key on your keyboard to boot into Vista Safe Mode.
  5. When Windows starts you will be at a typical logon screen. Logon to your computer and Vista will enter Safe mode.
  6. Do whatever tasks you require, and when you are done, reboot to go back into normal mode.

How to install vista on I-MAC


Hi Harry

yes, vista can be installed on I-macs ...but i need to know which version of operating system do you have (whether it's leopard or tiger and version 10.5.2 or earlier)
I say so because new version of Leopard Operating system has a feature called "boot camp"... this is Apple's "bootloader" ... which means it will help you install windows Vista on Apple I-mac .

If you have genuin vista disk handy with you and after you have backed up all the data on the apple machine , this is what you gotta do....

1. Using the Finder, navigate through Applications, Utilities and run Boot Camp Assistant.
2. Click Continue on the Introduction screen.
3. Next, you will need to specify how you want your hard drive divided up for Windows. A separate partition will be created that Windows will use. Drag the divider to adjust the size for Windows as shown below. I recommend at least 15 GB to allow for the OS and some apps. When you are ready, click Partition and your disk will be prepared.

4. It is time to start the Windows installation. Insert your Windows Vista install DVD and click Start Installation. Your Mac will automatically reboot and boot to the install DVD.

5. Install Windows Vista as you would normally do. When asked where to install, select the partition called BOOTCAMP. You will need for format this partition with NTFS.
6. When Windows Vista has installed, remove the Windows Vista install DVD and insert your OS X 10.5 Leopard install DVD. Run the Boot Camp installer application and all the Windows drivers for your Apple hardware will be automatically installed.

7. When you want to switch to OS X or Windows, just reboot and hold down the Option key to select what partition to boot.
