I have a Dell Inspiron laptop running Vista Home Premium. I am attempting to run the Vista Repair option (I still refer to it as a Repair Install as with XP but I think it is called something else now). At boot I select the Repair option and it eventually gets to a login screen with the "Other User" button on it. "Other User" is the only option. I select it, enter "Administrator" (account which is active), enter the password, and it says “The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted”. I tried entering "PC_NAME_HERE\Administrator" in the name field but it does the same thing.
Please provide some guidance on what is going on here and how I can get to the point of running a repair.
