How old is the computer?

If your computer has a 3.5 floppy disc, copy it to a 3.5 floppy disc, if not copy it to a cd. Without any folders, it should just be files.
Under Bios you will find the last one is most likely the bios you had with the computer originally.
The others are updates and betas. Although you may want to try the updates and beta bios, if the original one doesn't boot. But it should.
Keep moving up the bios ladder untill you get a bootup from your machine.
The newer bios downloads are updates for various problems.
After the bios is 'flashed' and you get an option to go into the bios with the delete button or whatever it says.
No need to go into the bios, so load your vista cd and reboot.
If however you have a 3.5 floppy disc drive on your computer, you may need to go into the bios and set it to boot from the cd. It should be the second or third set of Bios options. Press f10, it will save and reboot.

Start another thread about trouble loading a dual boot system.
I'm pretty lost on that unless you have two hard drives.
I just wanted to get you back to where you were.
Which we did, but now there is new problems.
So a new thread would be in order, so that others would look at it also.
Try to to get it back to Vista like it was.
Don't try to dual boot without help.
There's something you need that someone here can give.

Vista could not have been originally installed four years ago.
Originally Vista was installed. Computer is about 4 years old. Motherboard: p4p800-x
