Hi takeuout,

So you removed Vista from your laptop and now want to reinstall it on the same laptop? Is this correct? Check out http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprov... where someone else was having the same error message when reinstalling and follow the steps given there.

Hope this helps! Let us know...

Cheers,
