|bit long winded but here goes|
went to do a format which i have done at least 10 times before on this pc
boot to dvd and install vista all fine install antivirus and updates reboot no problem
but when ever i take the vista disc out the drive windows wont boot
first i got an error bootmgr is missing or corrupt
tried chkdsk /r and bootrec /fixboot seemed to work but got new error
"disc boot failure insert system disc and press enter"
when i do it just repeats the error
as vista only seems to do a very quick format i then installed a xp disc and did the full format and swapped discs when the reboot happened and did a vista format and instal
but still no joy
i can get windows to start by putting the vista disc in and then i get choose operating system to start (both are vista) just select the first one and its no problem
not sure how to delete the second one.
