here is a video on what happens when i select "English" -it automatically scrolls to the bottom of the list (Japanese)-This also happens with scroll bars in Safe Mode before I started the reinstallation.
thanks-but I should i have mentioned that I did that! Though I suspect it to be deeper problem I tried both my Vista Premium 64 and 32 disks-Same problem. Additional info: I am able to format but I am only seeing PART of the drive ~232GB (its a 250 GB Hard drive)- I says "partition 2" but does not show me what's on partion 1 or 0 however it should be labeled. A formatted the disk a few months back but I had left a few GBs unformatted-this is what i think accounts for the missing part-yet I don't see it during the installation. When I go into DOS from the installation disk I see a volume "x:" with about folders. I run the DEL command on these folders and it returns "access denied" . When I run the FORMAT command on the volume "x:/" it prompts for its label- which i found out to be "boot" by running the DIR command on x:/ . However once I supply the label "boot" to the prompt after I tried to format-i say it cannot format-"disk is write protected." Short of removing the disk to an external enclosure to have access to the entire 250 GB (less HDD management space) -i am looking for a software solution. Thanks again.
