Sorry it's not clear what you are attempting. Are you trying to install Vista again?
If so, at what stage does the system not recognise the disks?
The process is this. Insert the Vista Setup CD/DVD. Reboot the computer. The BIOS should recognise a system disk and start to boot from that.
Then, using the Vista disk, delete all partitions, reformat if necessary, then the disk should continue with it's setup to install Vista.
Where is this going wrong?
I have a HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook pc,AMD Turion(tm)64x2 with had Vista installed.This is my problem....I had a major sound glitch in Vista that I could not fix.Soooo I had a XP CD and I installed XP into this laptop,of cos I did a clean install and formatted,I know,Duh.Now I have lost all my notebook drivers and pretty much useless.So I contacted HP,talked to a tech and he sold me the two system recovery disc made for this Notebook telling me these disc will bring back my pc to the original settings and drivers.By the way the system restore is gone also.Yup,another Duh.Anyhow,got the disc,tried disc 1 and nothing,kept trying but the Notebook does not reconize the disc.Called HP again,they told me since XP is the operating system now the pc will not reconize and they refused to help.I cannot get the Notebook on line,is there anybody out there that knows how I get the notebook to reconize these recovery disc?PLEASE!
