More about : boot windows Best solution Scotteq a b $ Windows 7 November 19, 2009 2:47:18 PM Can't boot to Vista at all? Not good... The first thing I would recommend is trying repair the start up files. If this works, then you should be good to go from there however you like.

How to perform a full system repair: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-repair-install-... If those don't work, then you're looking at a complete re-install no matter what. If you ahve a Win 7 DVD, then you may as well go to that... Share catman112 November 19, 2009 6:18:45 PM Cheers Scotteq. Tried above but only have the recovery partition on hard drive and this seems to be part of the problem. Will try the win 7 approach to see if this overcomes the problem, sometime this weekend.
