  • Question

  • Good Day to All,

    Since the 2nd of May, I've been having problems with my Windows Vista Ultimate.

    System Setup:

      Sony Vaio AR51SU, 4GB Ram, 2x500GB HardDrive (as 1GB Drive), dual boot (Windows Vista Ultimate w/SP2 and Windows 7).

    The Windows 7 partition boots without a problem, so I don't think I'm having a hardware (Ram, Storage, etc.) problem.

    Recently, I installed a USB umts stick for remote work for my job. Everything was working fine, and then one day my Vista Ultimate starts BSOD by boot/reboot. I restore a backup to get the system working again. After searching the internet, I found out that a driver from Acronis (Try and Decide) and the Huawei (usb umts) was not getting along very well.  So, I installed Windows 7 on a 200GB partition and restored the Vista from a backup that I had. Everything starting working fine again. Then, after an automatic WSU, the problem has returned. I can't get out of the BSOD loop when booting Vista. Even after setting the system to not boot on a crash, it still boots on a crash. So, I can't see the error message.

    I'ved tried a system restore from the an install cd, but it says there is no restore point on the drive. 

    Now my questions:

    1. How can I get the system to not boot after a blue screen?

    2. How can I uninstall drivers when the system won't boot?

    3. How can I get permissions to files on the Vista partition while I'm in Windows 7?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Desperately trying to get Vista working again.
