RE: 'Repair' option does not show up after upgraded to Vista Ulti
Thanks for the tip - but I only want to repair Vista Ultimate OS and do not
want to reinstall many application programs installed already. I ran the
installation DVD from the start up (not within Windows) but 'Repair' options
do not have the opetion of epair OS from the disk! Is there any way to save
installed application programs and data and reistall the Vista Ultimate?
