    Hi,

     

    I suggest trying the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.

     

    1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer. 

    2. Press a key when the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …".

    3. Select a language, a time and currency, and a keyboard or input method, and then click Next. 

    4. Click Repair your computer. 

    5. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, choose the drive of your Windows installation and click Next 

    6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Startup Repair.

     

    If the issue persists, let’s manually repair the boot sector:

     

    1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer. 

    2. Press a key when the message indicating "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD …". appears.

    3. Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next. 

    4. Click Repair your computer. 

    5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next. 

    6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt. 

    7. Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd, and then press ENTER. 

     

    Can we start Windows Vista now?

     

    Hope it helps.
