  • When you say ‘…. get into Vista ….‘ do you mean using the repair feature?

    If so, as you don’t have a Vista DVD you can download and create a Repair Disk x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) here http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/  After downloading the ISO image to your hard disk, burn it to a CD (a DVD is not necessary as the x86 (32-bit) version is 120MB and the x64 (64-bit) version is 148MB).

    It cannot install Vista but it repairs an installation in the same way as the Vista DVD, i.e. boot from the disk, choose ‘Press any key to boot from CD/DVD’ and Vista will start to load the Windows files. Select your language, time, currency and keyboard then click ‘Repair’ in the bottom left corner. There are five choices within Repair: Startup Repair, System Restore, Backup Restore, Memory Test and Command Prompt.
