|Thanks princecorum for your reply !! but nither f8 nor inserting a DVD worked....when i try to hit f8 at start, all i see is a black screen and when i changed my boot sequence to DVD, and inserted windows 7 or windows vista's DVD, i get the message: press any key to boot from CD or DVD: Error could not find bootmgr. If I try to boot my laptop with windows xp cd, i get the message: memory over flow error. and If i try to boot from the vista recovery DVD, the windows hangs upon: Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration.....|
My laptop came with vista but i upgraded it to windows7 when it came out in the market. Thats the reason i made those recovery DVD's before formating vista just in case if i needed my computer in the state that it originally came in .
It is a Acer Aspire 5630 laptop with 2GB of RAM and 320 GB of hard disk space.
