Hi seatbelts - to email your letter, after you have written your email their should be an attach files tab depending on what email you use it may be called something else but it should have the word attach in it. Click on that tab and it should give you a browse option that lets you go through your pc to find the file. Find the file, it will have a W icon to the left of it and then the name you gave it. Click on the file and then click on open or ok (again depending on what email you use) and the file should be attached to your email. It should even say somewhere the name of the file that is attached and the size. As far as an instruction book for Vista, there are many you can buy. If you are looking at how to do things with specific programs I would first look within those programs for tutorials. For instance, Word has a very extensive tutorial and help program built into it. Your email program should have a help section built into it. Vista has an extensive help section built into it. If you really want a book on Vista, you can start with Vista for Dummies. No offense meant but that's what it's called. If you feel you know somewhat more go to your local book store and there are several books you can buy. Look what's in them to be sure the book is right for your level of expertise. I hope this helped. If this solved your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Unable to send e-mails in windows mail


In Win Vista Outlook is reconfigured to WIndows Live mail, so the only solution is to use this version , but you can transfer your account settings from earlier computer with outlook installed... there is a link how to do that, but it leads to another site then another etc.

Siplest explanation is : from outlook_> export everything to a file, and then tranfer it to windows live by "import"

Setup windows vista or windows 7 from pendrive


This tutorial will help you in creating a bootable USB drive of Windows Vista which you can use to install Vista in any system. It might become very useful when you don't have access to DVD drive.
1. First format your USB drive in NTFS file system. You can do it by attaching your USB drive to your system and then format it from My Computer window.
2. Now open Command Prompt window from Start menu. Right-click on Command Prompt entry in start menu and select "Run as administrator" option.
3. Now type diskpart in Command Prompt window and press Enter. It'll launch DiskPart program:
launchdiskpart.jpg
4. Now provide following command:
list volume
It'll show a list of all drives in your system. Look for your USB drive entry. As in the below screenshot, the USB drive is "G" which you can determine from its "Type" entry.
Now you have to select the USB drive volume by providing select volume no. command. Since in our case volume no. of USB drive is "Volume 4", the command would be:
select volume 4
Now we have to make this drive active. So provide active command:
active
Now exit from DiskPart using exit command.
usingdiskpart.jpg
5. Now we need to create Boot sector on USB drive. We'll use "bootsect.exe" utility for this task. You can find this utility in Windows Vista setup disk. It'll be present in "Boot" directory.
Now provide following command in Command Prompt:
bootsect /nt60 G:
Here G is drive letter of USB drive. Replace it with the correct drive letter if your system has some other letter for USB drive.

6. At last, copy all files/folders from Vista Setup DVD to your USB drive and you have done.
Now you can boot using your USB drive and can install Windows Vista in any system.
Thanks to Dave Glover for this info...

Sometimes this is a faulty flash drive (Assuming that is what you are talking about)
In XP
Try to format it from the command line. Go to START - RUN - and type in the letters CMD in the box and hit ENTER. From there type in FORMAT and type in the drive letter of your removable disk.

Burning problems when running windows xp


avoid multitasking while burning disc, since this process requires more computer resources like Hard disk space and RAM. you can also update the firmware driver of your Disc burner from the manufacturer's website to correct the problem.
FOR HELP WITH DUAL BOOT INSTALLATION
Choose a partitionTo add Windows Vista to a system where an existing version of Windows is already installed, first make sure that you have an available partition (or unformatted disk space) separate from the partition that contains the system files for your current Windows version.
The target partition can be a separate partition on the same physical disk, or it can be on a different hard disk. If your system contains a single disk with a single partition used as drive C, you cannot create a multiboot system unless you add a new disk or use software tools to shrink the existing partition and create a new partition from the free space. (The Windows Vista Disk Management console, Diskmgmt.msc, includes this capability; to shrink partitions on a system running an older Windows version, you’ll need third-party software.) The new partition does not need to be empty; however, it should not contain system files for another Windows installation. Run Setup, choose the Custom (Advanced) option, and select the disk and partition you want to use for the new installation.
The Setup program automatically handles details of adding the newly installed operating system to the Boot Configuration Data store.
And how do you edit and configure the Boot Configuration Data store? Surprisingly, the only official tool is a command-line utility called Bcdedit. Bcdedit isn’t an interactive program; instead, you perform tasks by appending switches and parameters to the Bcdedit command line. To display the complete syntax for this tool, open an elevated Command Prompt window (using the Run as Administrator option) and enter the command Bcdedit –?
arrow_px_up.gifTop of page Rename entries in the boot menuFor everyday use, most Bcdedit options are esoteric and unnecessary. In fact, the only option that we remember using more than once during the entire development cycle for Windows Vista was the command to change the text for each entry in the boot menu. By default, Setup adds the generic entry “Microsoft Windows Vista” for each installation. If you set up a dual-boot system using Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Business, you’ll be unable to tell which is which, because the menu text will be the same for each. To make the menu more informative, follow these steps:



1. Start your computer and choose either entry from the boot menu. After startup completes, make a note of which installation is running.
2. Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, type cmd in the Search box, and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. Click Continue in the User Account Control box to open an elevated Command Prompt window.
3. Type the following command: bcdedit /set description "Menu description goes here" (substitute your own description for the placeholder text, and be sure to include the quotation marks). Press ENTER.
4. Restart your computer and note that the menu description you just entered now appears on the menu. Select the other menu option.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3, again adding a menu description to replace the generic text and distinguish this installation from the other one.
Control which drive letter your boot volume usesWhich drive letter will your clean installation of Windows Vista use? That depends on how you install it. If you currently have a working copy of any Windows version on drive C and you install a clean copy of Windows, drive letters are assigned using the following logic:
• If you begin the installation process by booting from the Windows Vista media and choose a partition other than the one containing your current copy of Windows, the new installation uses the drive letter C when you start up. The volume that contains the other Windows installation uses the next available drive letter. When you choose the previous Windows installation from the startup menu, it uses the drive letter C, and your new Windows Vista installation is assigned the next available drive letter. In this configuration, you can be certain that your current operating system is always on the C drive, but drive letters assigned to volumes you use for data may shift in unexpected ways.
• If you begin the installation process by running Setup from within your current version of Windows and use the Custom (Advanced) option to perform a clean install on a partition other than the one currently in use, the new installation uses the next available drive letter. The volumes containing each installation have the same drive letters regardless of which Windows version you select at startup.

Typing in correct product key but says it is invalid


If this is windows your trying to type the product key in for then you will need to call Microsoft to get a current key code.
If another software then most likely you will have to do the same.
There should be customer support on the cd, box or instruction manual.
