I think i just nuked my Vista install! HELP!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so i'm attempting to dual boot XP with Vista, so i made the partition and installed XP, and got a disk read error so i can't boot. I know how to fix that problem, i need to repair my vista install, but when i boot from my vista DVD, there is no repair option, it goes right to the install screen! So how do i find this "repair" feature?

Thanks in advance! I hope someone knows...this is kinda...urgent!

You have to click on "Install now" and then on the next screen there is a "Repair" option on the bottom left.

I don't see that screen. The first thing i see is the screen prompting you for the country and language. I don't see and "repair"...unless i'm blind!

I figured it out. I think i have a bad OEM copy or something, i'm gonna call MS about it because i don't have the repair feature, but install. ut thanks to al3x3y, that repair CD worked and solved my problem! Dual booting works fine now!

I feel so dumb! After installing XP, it took me like...oh 10 mins to figure out why the internet wasn't working no matter what i tried to do. I totally forgot to install the mobo chipset drivers!! LOL!! I'm used to vista and not having to install any network drivers to have the internet.
