1.Now i've tried to call my the manufacturer and they are telling me that i need to re-install vista.
2.I've tried contacting mycrosoft and they just tell me they cant help me, that i have to talk to the original manufacturer.
Now i have a External Hard Drive which i took out of my old dying laptop and got a coolmax 2>5 eSata/ USB 2.0 Drive Enclosure and i was wondering if i should try to install my vista Cd in to that and reformat my primary drive? I took all my old pics, music, and other info out of the External hard drive and my second question is, Would it be a good idea to try to install vista on the external drive and then reformat my primary drive so i can re-install vista on the primary drive?
This is basically my first attemp to install an OS so im alittle worried that i could mess something up so i came here to get your guys help.
