    Please help me the shop is miles away form where i live

    But if you installed Vista via another computer, that is your problem. You can't do that with Vista the same as you can't do that with XP. You'll need to install in your computer or at least do a repair of Vista.

    My pc wont reboot from disk for some reson!, i go to bios and try load fail safe settings, i also tryed to place cd rom boot priority but i did reboot from the pc when i first made it so it chould be the settings are wrong! and yeah ill try just xp on my pc and the if it workes will i be able to put vista on top? i only have the academic ver and it says u can only place it on 1 pc? Thanks David


    Is your cd drive a just a cd drive and not a DVD drive? Vista comes on DVD not cd like XP did and if this is the case, that is the reason it won't boot from it.

    nope its a dvd drive and vista or xp wont boot up, i pressed F8 and i disabled auto restart and i got an error code:
    *** STOP: 0x0000007b
    (0x86005ba0, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
    in the blue screen of death

    I have set disk to boot from disk but it ignors them and boots up windows, is there a f key i can try or somethin because when bios loads the cd is on and it flashed on the tower but nothin happens
    but when i change the boot priority to bootable add ins than the hard drive i have in at the moment it comes up error on boot disk press enter and continue i have tryed 3 official disks and [32] disk but get nothin
