   * Boot up your computer using Microsoft Windows Vista Bootable disk or CD. (Check your BIOS setup)
    * When you see the 1st Windows Vista installation screen appear, please configure your 'language' preferences.
    * When prompted, click 'Repair your computer'.
    * Startup Repair will automatically detect a problem. When prompted, click 'Repair and restart', and then restart your computer from the Windows Vista bootable disk. If Startup Repair does not automatically detect a problem, continue to the next step.
    * click 'Repair Your Computer'.
    * Click Command Prompt from the System Recovery Options.
    * BootRec.exe provides the following command-line options:

    * /FixMbr. Re-writes the master boot record (MBR) of the system partition to start Windows Vista. This wont overwrite the existing partition table.

    * /FixBoot. Writes a boot sector onto the system partition to start Windows Vista.

    * /ScanOs. Scans all disks for Windows Vista installations and displays them to you. Oddly, this didnt work for me, even on a test system that was starting just fine.

    * /RebuildBcd. Scans all disks for Windows Vista installations and prompts you to pick the ones you want to add to the BCD.

    * Type  'BootRec.exe /fixmbr' and press Enter.
    * Congratulations! You're done.
