My laptop completely messed up the other weak and i had to re install Windows Vista via a disc. Half way through installing my battery died and now when i boot the laptop all i see is a Vista background and nothing else. how can i continue to install Vista?
Are you sure that the computer is booting from the cd rather than trying to load the unfinished install from the HD. Does a dialouge "Boot from CD y/n...." appear after you switch on the computer with the vista cd already in the drive?
