Vista Ultimate 32 bit not booting
Installed Ultimate 32 bit about a year ago and everything was going fine. Upgraded my computer components, and while flashing the BIOS on the new motherboard the power went out. Had to clear the CMOS to get the board to take the BIOS update.

But now it tries to boot into Vista but just throws a BSOD and restarts. Went to use the Vista system disk to see if I could fix the boot, but it doesn't offer any reocovery option. To boot that even it doesn't even show an install of Vista on the hard drive I know it was on. Do I have to get another HD and install Vista there then pull everything back from the other drive or is there another solution I am overlooking or unaware of at this time?

Re: Vista Ultimate 32 bit not booting
Just reformat your machine if the system recovery option is not working. Or else when starting up hold or keep pressing the F8 key and then try running your computer in safe mode to see if you can see what is going on. If that does not work then just reformat, it's the simplest solution...unless your HD is bad or got fried.
