    Good afternoon :]

    I've just dropped by to ask for a bit of help on the subject of my vista startup.

    All was running fine, intill i installed Vista SP1 off the correct location, when i tried to run windows on startup it loads the bar near to the end then flashes a blue screen with error writing on, note this code is flashed, not readable.

    I've tried system restore, but i had no points in time that i could go too? Which is odd, because there's usually plenty.

    I'm currently connecting this forum via my Linux partition btw.

    Any Ideas?

    To read the blue screen (of death), you need to tell the computer not to reboot automatically. You can do this on the F8 Safe boot menu or in the Advanced options, Startup and Recovery and untick option 'Automatically restart'.

    I can not find this option to disable restart on error messages.

    Did you mean get into safe mode and disable it there? because i can not get into safe mode either, the same thing happens.

    I've looked through the BIOS and there doesn't seem to be such option there...

    1. Open Control panel
    2. Select System and Maintenance
    3. Select System and then Advanced system settings
    4. Select Advanced tab
    5. Select Startup and Recovery
    6. Disable automatic restart

    If you read the posts you will see that jokerjake cannot access Windows AT ALL. Using a Linux partition to access internet, CANNOT get into safe mode either. BSOD You can run the Linux command utility. The commands are different but it works with Windows. i did it myself the other day. You can find a list of Linux cmd prompts here for starters.


    Linux

    HERE

    In case you have to reinstall this one has commands for MOVING FILES

    That is what is a little strange, but the linux commands run through linux on a drive you specify, will work. I just used the (fsck /r) it is equivalent to (chkdsk /r) last week on an XP home notebook. I have never tried it in Vista but the command utility for Vista and XP are the same.

    Do not specify the path or drive letter. The command will check/repair the entire disk. (fsck /r)
