HELP!! Having problems installing Vista Home Premium Upgrade
Well being the glutten for punishment that i am and not being able to resist
new things i just bought myself a copy of windows vista home premium upgrade.
I tried to install and all went really well until it said completing
installation. It got to about 30% and then a dreaded blue screen crash!!
The computer rebooted and the vista installation informed me that it had
failed the installation and would restore my windows to it's previous state.
This it seemd to do, but now when i start the pc up it gives me two choices
start with an earlier version of windows (this allows me to start windows xp)
or windows rollback which does nothing apart form sit there with the vista
screen. I have tried every way to install it again but it just seems that it
won't have it and now crashes on copying installation files!!
Have tried everything it seems, what i want to be able to do is now go back
to before i tried installing vista and start again. i used system restore
(which by the way mentions nothing about an attempt to install vista) to do
this but when the computer restarts, whilst completing the restore process,
it comes up with the 2 options of either reverting to an earlier version of
windows or use the windows rollback and because i have to select the earlier
version of windows it then does not complete the restore process.
the way i look at it i need to remove the file that is making my boot up
process ask me the two options so windows xp will boot straight to xp. Then i
can system restore to the day i clean formatted xp and reinstalled everything
and try the install again. So how do i do that and remove all the temp files
that vista has managed to leave somewhere?? I can't re-install my whole
system at the moment which i was going to do as my raid floppy disc is
Vista upgrade advisor says that my computer will have no problems at all
during teh upgrade process with no problems reported.
Any ideas help much appreciated
