You'll probably have to low level format the HDD

Sorry, your english is a little choppy. With the vista disc in, do you get the message to 'press any key'?

Does the vista disc look scratched?

Make sure your optical drive is the first boot device.

If you aren't getting the message to 'press any key' with the disc in, it's either a bad disc or a bad optical drive.

My thoughts are that you may be using a vista DVD, as opposed to xp CD? Is this the very same disc drive you used with the vista disc before, or was vista pre-installed?
