Allright, im very frustrated. Well it all started like this. I popped in my Windows Vista installation cd and chose to boot by CD-ROM/DVD Drive. Then it took me to the screen where i have to choose how i want to start windows, you know, the safe mode and run windows normally screen. I chose to run it normally, then it took me to the Windows XP loading screen. After that, the computer started to read the disk, and all of a sudden a BLUE SCREEN popped out for a quick 0.5 second, and the laptop restarted. So then i took out the Vista cd and again i had to choose between the run windows normally and the safe mode, so i choose to run windows normally again, but the same thing happened and it took me to the blue screen and restarted. So then i try the safe mode, and this time it showed me all those lines on the bottom, with the last one being: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition2\WINDOWS\system32\drivers.TDI.SYS and after that, it went to the blue screen again, lasting about 0.5 seconds, AGAIN... I also tried popping in the Windows XP cd and the same thing happened. I have the CD-ROM/DVD Drive boot up first... Soooo, help please?? heh thanks :)

Hi litos, and welcome to Geeks to Go! Let's see what we can do for you.

First, let's find out exactly what that blue screen is. Please turn on your computer and start tapping on the <F8> key, maybe once or twice a second. This will get you into the Advanced Boot Options Menu. Arrow down to Disable automatic restart on system failure and press Enter. The computer will continue to boot up, and should come up to a blue screen that will stay up. Please give us all of the information under TECHNICAL INFORMATION.

Also, it looks like you have Windows XP installed, but the CD that you are using is Vista. Can you please clarify that for us? What operating system are you currently running, and do you have a CD for that operating system?
