Vista Home Premium won't boot

June 16, 2009 at 18:27:07
Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium, p4/512
I have my son's laptop that has Vista Home Premium on it, when booting it gets to Startup Repair, but states that it could not repair the computer automatically. I have asked him for the disks that came with the computer, but he does not know where they are have searched for software that would contain an .iso file that I could boot off of, maybe to get it to load to where I scan for virusus or something he downloaded to cause the system to crash.
The information that it wants to send to Microsoft is:

Problem Signature:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairV2
Problem Signature 01: Autofailover
Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6000.16386
Problem Signature 03: 6
Problem Signature 04: 983052
Problem Signature 05: Corruptfile
Problem Signature 06: NoBootFailure
Problem Signature 07: 0
Problem Signature 08: 0
Problem Signature 09: unknown
Problem Signature 10: 1168
OS Version: 6.0.6000.
Local ID: 1033

I have gone into recovery options and tried to get into it as Adminstrator, but it has been disabled. Another User has ADMIN privleges, and go into the System recovery options, System Restore does not have a point that it can be loaded from, there is a option for Dell factory Image Restore, but I don't want to try that one if I can get Vista to load somehow without loosing everything on there.

I think you need to do a start-up repair , this tutorial from bleeping computers explains how

You may also not have a Full install disk , so this will do .

Nb. you do not need to use a torrent downloader for this disc just
double click on the down loaded link and select the browser of choice .

Some people have reported problems when they have burned this disk with Nero , I have had no problems with Vista's burner or Cdburnerxp ,
just slow the burn speed down a bit ,

If start-up repair does not do it for you try system restore .

As stated in first post, I do not have a Vista DVD to use for the Startup repair. If I read the Neosmart page right, it has to be made off of another Vista cpmputer to pull the necessary files for it. All of my other PC's are XP.

From your XP machine , Click on the neosmart link and d\l the

ISO , burn this to a CD or DVD , It is not a complete Vista disk

just the recovery environment . As this is working from outside

of the OS a recovery my be possible .
