    Unable to boot into vista
    « on: June 13, 2009, 04:44:01 AM »
    My vista has been working fine until yesterday there was an update that installed my computer auto installed it and restarted after this it seemed to work ok.  When I tried to boot computer up now it goes past the bios page then blue screen shows for 2 secs and restarts.  I have tried a repair and did not work I tried to go into safe mode but it also has the same blue screen I have recovery switched off so cant use this either! any ideas to how to get this solved I am able to slave the drive and access it this way?

    Do you have your installer disk? You can do a repair of Vista from there.

    I have tried a repair
    What kind of repair was it?
    What does BSOD say?

      The bscreen just flashes on the screen then restarts and goes in a loop I have seen this happen on Dell GX755 when going from windows xp sp2 to sp3.  A repair fixes this though.  When I try running the repair it says it cant.  Is there another way to repair with vista?  Is there a way I can get the error message when I have the hard drive slaved up?

      I think Automatic Restart is enabled on your machine. May we know what kind of repair have you done with it? Is it a repair installation?

          If you have real Vista DVD, try this: http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-repair-install-vista.html

          Thanks for the link I have the vista dvd so I will go try this from the link given thanks ever so much.  The repair I used does find an error on start up but cant fix I shall try this way and get back.

          This over the top install should fix the issue.
