    Hi, OK, I guess I should have waited for an answer to my MBR question of a few hours back. I didn't and instead after doing some searching here decided to download MBRFix.

    I ran it on a spare computer with the failing (but still booting) HD in a USB enclosure and copied the MBR. I then swapped in the original non-booting Vista (which the failing HD was an image of) and used MBRFix to restore the MBR. Now I get the BSOD.

    I really do not want to have to do a clean install as I have been remiss with backing up.

    The joke is the BSOD says,
    "Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption"
    "STOP: 0x0000007B (0x80E03BA0,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000"

    How can I run chkdsk if I can't get to the command prompt?

    Can anyone please assist on where to go from here?

    Thanks

    Do you have the Vista Operating Disc?

    Thanks for the quick reply,

    No, this only has the hidden PQSERVICE partition for eRecovery. Which, I did some reading on and found I get some options, so i thought I would have a look see, but...

    I did the Alt+F10 and it goes to

    Pre-Boot execution environment (PXE) 2.1
    PXE-E61: Media test failure. Check cable <-- It's a laptop and there is no cable :)
    PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM
    Operating system not found.

    So it looks like I can't even do a clean install if I wanted to.
