Can you logon at all? Perhaps with the Administrator account?

Do you have your Vista disk?

Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
Press a key when you are prompted.
Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
Click Repair your computer.
Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
Bootrec  /FixMbr

Bootrec  /FixBoot

cd  boot

attrib  bcd  -s  -h  -r

ren  c:\boot\bcd  bcd.old

bootrec  /RebuildBcd

exit

(I use two SPACEs in the code box so you can see where 1 space goes. Remove the disk and see if it will boot now.)

Goes straight to installation and then can't install. Just quits. Can't get to repair or any other options.

Doesn't sound like it is the Vista disk. Perhaps a restore to how it left the factory disk. Can you get a friend to burn a CD for you? You need the disk mentioned here (Windows Vista Recovery Environment):

Preferably from a clean computer, I need you to download:
Windows Vista 32-Bit (x86) Recovery Environment

Create a bootable CD, for the Windows Vista Recovery Environment, from the ISO image. You can use ImgBurn do this.

Boot from the Windows Vista Recovery Environment CD and execute the following commands:

  • bootrec /FixMbr
  • bootrec /FixBoot
  • exit

I think Microsoft got on him about it and he had to remove it. There is an alternative way but it's more work in Vista. Easy in Windows 7. (IF you know someone with a Windows 7 PC that would be the way to go. Just make sure it's not the 64 bit version as that is a different animal.) http://www.winhelpon...ws-7-and-vista/
