I tried installing a differant version of Vista [ instead of the one that came preinstalled in my Acer Pc , I thought a differant windows vista might work ? ] And it would not boot . I brought up a menu im not familiar with I think it was a Grub / root menu " line editing is supported. for the first word, TAB lists possible command completions windows " I tried booting from that menu but I could not figure out how to do it . It didnt seem to recognise the drives , I also tried to repair from the install disc .. I had to reinstall the Preinstalled version it came with using the recovery discs I made .
Would like some help with installing a differant version of vista then the one my pc came with . I dont like all the garbage that it comes preinstalled with , and all the extras on it take up a huge chunk of the hard drive
I was able to install a clean version of Vista by using Vlite to create a Boot disc . But still have been unable to install XP . I have the extra Partiton made , and the xp disc loads but before I get to the part where I have to choose where to install . It tells me " A Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer . Is it possilbe that my PC is not compatible with windows XP ?
