If you're wanting to make a new install of Vista on a new or use hard drive, it's better to start by unplugging all secondary drives till you get the operating system installed on the first one.. So, unplug all drives except for the primary drive, place the Recovery Disc in the DVD/CD drive, then restart the computer.. You can then follow the procedures to recover the OS or format and reinstall everything from scratch.. Is that what you did?
Hope this helps.
Hi all. Again! Now my hub pc went down. The primary hdd was fried, so I used the other 320g hdd as the primary and a WD 1tb green hdd. No matter what boot priority I assign, all I get is `BOOTMGR missing'. Then it goes back to the blue options screen.
