Hi all, im new here and i need alittle help with vista.
I'm trying to reformat for a clean install of Windows Vista Home
Premium x32 onto my laptop. The laptop only came with the 'Recovery
DVD', however i have a retail copy not supplied with the laptop.
Using the recovery DVD, and boot CD/DVD BIOS setup, i get to the screen
where the 'insall windows' pop up screen is supposed to
For some reason this screen doesnt appear but i am able to move my mouse
which tells me it hasnt hung. (stuck on this:
The retail DVD and now every 'f8' option is giving me the same screen
too, even without a CD/DVD in the optical drive.
(f8 options as in safe mode, EMS, last know working configuration,
debugging mode etc.)
Any help/ideas will be great!
