Vista Wont Boot
Posted on 2007-11-18
I have a dual boot XP, Vista Ultimate and now cant boot Vista or Vista DVD
Vista sits on a SATA drive, while XP is on a PATA, a thrd PATA is also connected formated as NTFS for data etc.
I had recently done a registry scan/clean using "Registry Cleaner" for the first time. I dont know weather this has anything to do with why it wont boot. If i try booting the Vista DVD to recever, it fails to load, saying a device is failing Hard Drive, removable device etc.
I have checked all the drives using the Windows tools in XP, and report fine.
XP is still working, in fact i had to use it to log onto this site!
