I've just tried to delete the leavings of a failed Vista upgrade and accidentally deleted the wrong boot files. I cannot boot the computer and cannot access the recovery console, as it gives me an error 2 result, missing restore.log file. I have no idea what to do at this point. Help!
Well you have a couple options, I had similar issues with a corrupted boot files. You can either run Hiren's boot disc and see if you can force it to recover which should work. Hiren's is a very good user friendly dos boot disk with a lot of good utilities added to it, just Google it and download it for free, unzip and burn the ISO image to a disk, then boot from CD. And if that doesn't work friend, slave it, pull your data off and trash the drive it is toast, which is what I ended up having to do on a couple.
