    Hello,

    a friend gave me his HP DV6500 Notebook to fix it. He said it made an update and then for hours nothing happened. He shut it and started again.

    I could see that it tried to recover 2 times. The second time it was successful but it somehow resetted or returned the Vista to a fresh install!!! His data was locked in a previous User account, I backed it up on a usb-stick with a linux live cd.

    I can't make a reinstall because now a bluescreen always appears even when I boot from Vista DVD.

    ntoskrnl.exe corrupt when try to boot vista in the normal way.


    How can I fix that without being able to use the repair option of the DVD?


    Sorry, the title of the thread is wrong. I figured out already that the BIOS version is for an Intel. So everything is ok with the BIOS actually.
