Specs: vista
new hard drive and reinstalling operating system from recovery disks. hp laptop, vista. recovery disks sucessfully loaded windows but on reboot to finish setting up, it gives error message that cannot load winsetup.dll, file may be corrupt, restart the installation. i have restarted installation both from recovery disks and recovery partition. same problem. i have to say i did make these recovery disks after having trouble with the old hard drive booting.... i was able to reinstall windows from the recovery partition on the old drive so that i could run the disk making utility. any ideas?

I think your problem stems from the fact that your old hard drive was starting fail before you did the recovery, so the recovery discs you made may be faulty because of that. I would contact your PC/Laptop manufacturer and ask if they can supply a set of recovery discs for your PC model.
