Vista booting failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a gateway desktop a couple of months ago, came with vista, yesterday after a reboot (windows update) it doesn't boot anymore

    I try to use the startup recovery tool but it seems to hang forever, is it normal to not show progress when checking the hard drive? I know it is a big HD(400gb) but how long would it take? also there is the no real progress bar there, what they were thinking?

    Any ideas?

    Oh, also tried to restore but it says HD has errors, then shows up a dialog box similar to the one in xp tool to check disks but again shows no progress on the bar.

  • If the system is under warranty, have the HDD replaced and order the System Recovery DVDs..
