    Are you talking about not using the Vista cd or not using any cd?

If you are using MS-DOS 6.0 or later, you can use multiple configuration menus or the CHOICE.COM program to configure your system. For more information on using these options under MS-DOS 6.0 or later, type HELP MULTI-CONFIG or HELP CHOICE at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER. To create the files to automatically restart your computer with the appropriate configuration, do the following:

Create a directory on your hard drive called C:\CONFIGS. Create the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files you need to boot your system for HIMEM.SYS and applications that require it, with the following names: c:\configs\config.dos c:\configs\autoexec.dos Create the CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files you need to start your system for the program that conflicts with HIMEM.SYS. Any unique file extension can be used. The following example uses 386: c:\configs\config.386 c:\configs\autoexec.386 The following DEBUG script can be used to create a small executable file called REBOOT.COM. This file, when executed, will cause your system to restart. To create the file, change to the DOS directory, and type the following: debug reboot.comEnter the following information, pressing ENTER key after each line: A 100 ; Debug instruction for assemble MOV AH,0D ; Disk Reset INT 21h ; causes SmartDrv 4.x to write cache MOV AX, 40 ; set up segment addressing MOV DS,AX DS: OR BYTE PTR [17],0C ; equivalent of pressing CTRL+ALT MOV AX,4F53 ; Issue a "DEL" (53h = DEL scan code) INT 15h ; EMM386 sees this & shuts down. DS: MOV WORD PTR [72],1234 ; Set REBOOT flag to Warm-Boot (0=cold) JMP F000:FFF0 ; Execute the internal restart routine <CR> ; This line must be blank (just hit ENTER) R CX 20 ; File size to be written to disk (in hex) N REBOOT.COM ; Filename W ; Write the file to disk Q ; Quit Debug NOTE: The REBOOT.COM file created with this debug script is compatible with SMARTDrive and its write-behind cache feature. The instructions in REBOOT.COM cause SMARTDrive to write (flush) its write-behind cache to disk before the computer is rebooted.

The following commands can be used to copy and rename the configuration files to the root directory of the C drive and restart the computer. To simplify the process, you can put these commands into batch files.

To start your machine for Windows, use the following commands: copy c:\configs\autoexec.dos c:\autoexec.bat copy c:\configs\config.dos c:\config.sys reboot.com To start your machine for the 386 application, use the following commands: copy c:\configs\autoexec.386 c:\autoexec.bat copy c:\configs\config.386 c:\config.sys reboot.com

    When you choose Reboot, the system attempts to reads the IntelliPoint Setup disk regardless of whether the disk is in the floppy disk drive.



    WORKAROUND
    loadTOCNode(1, 'workaround');

    Choosing the Cancel button two or more times eventually reboots the system successfully without reinserting the IntelliPoint Setup disk.

Hi Good day!! There might be a corrupted files in your windows (BOOTMGR) you will need a windows 7 CD

* Insert your Windows 7 disk into your DVD player and restart your computer.
* The next screen you see should have the Language, Time and Currency and Keyboard boxes.
* In the lower left side there are two options: "What to know before installing Windows" and "Repair your computer."
* Click on "Repair your computer"
* Windows will then try to find the installation directory for Vista or Windows 7, depending on what you have.
* Next up is a screen with a box called Recovery Options. Click the first option, Startup Repair.
* You'll see a Startup Repair box with the message "Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..."
* When it's done, it will prompt you to reboot. If there is more than one problem it may reboot again to continue repairing.
* At this point, you can remove the DVD, reboot and everything should be working.

I AM A PARENT TRYING TO OPEN MY DAUGHTER'S LAPTOP. SHE WILL NOT GIVE ME THE PASSWORD. IT IS RUNNING VISTA CAN YOU HELP?


Method 1
Restart the computer and keep pressing F8 until you get the OS Choices menu, select "Safe Mode". after that click on Administrator then it will
go to the desktop if the Administrator account is enabled or it will not work and there are no known programs that can bypass userinit.exe in vista.
Check this You Tube video:-
http://www.chakpak.com/video/bypass-admin-login-in-xp,vista-%28hack-password%29/440505

Method 2
If the above method does not work then dowhload the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD, then insert it into the laptop and get the laptop to boot up on the Hiren's CD.
This CD is a very useful utilities CD, it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program.
Click on one of these links to download.

I have samsung x10 laptop unable to boot


Hi there,

if you have the install disks for windows you can try to run a "chkdsk" with the cd. Put the cd in the computer, reboot the computer (please make sure you have the cd as the first option in the boot session), then type r (for repair) and then type chkdsk and press return, and let the program check for corruption on the HD, after the program has run then take the cd out and reboot the computer.

Hope that helps
IF NOT then try to return here

Acer M5641: computer crashed, mbr is corrupted, 'CD/DVD Drivers..


Hello,

What I am going to say pertains to Windows XP (I cannot vouch it will work for Vista, because I do not have Vista).

Boot from the installation CD, Choose Repair installation. You will have access to the recovery console. Log in the Windows installation that is detected. You will be asked for the adminstrator password. Once logged in Type Help. In the list of commands available there is one called FIXMBR. Check its syntax by typing Help fixmbr, or even fixmbr ?
Type the correct command at the prompt and hit enter/return. It should fix it. After that Press CTRL ALT DEL to reboot.

If that does fix the mbr use another computer and query the microsoft knowledge base for Recovery Console (or the equivalent for Vista) and following the instructions.
Hope it helps.
