Looking to assist someone attempting to install an OS to a 64bt notebook. User installed Vista Ultimate 32bit to a 64bit Asus laptop. Was able to get an ISO download and burned it to a DVD. Machine set to boot to Disc but first installaton failed. Now getting error message: BOOTMGR is missing. What is the simplest way to troubleshoot whether the issue is with the existence of the 32bit OS or an issue with the burned ISO disk.

Actually moved ahead before getting the reply. Windows 7 home premium 64bit is now installed. Interesting problem is now seen. Installed Vista 32bit, then windows 7 home premium from the ISO after formating. Attempted to install defender only to find the message: You do not need to install this software because windows defender is included in windows vista.
Willing to start from scratch for the experience but would ask if there is a way to eliminate the remnants of Vista without a reinstall. The format should have done this.
