  • Hello,

    Don't worry, you don't need to re-install your windows. Simply boot from the Vista install DVD and select the option to repair your computer, this will do a quick check of common problems, including a wrong partition being marked as active. This wizard will fix the problem for you (at least if that is the only problem at hand).


    Kind regards,
