    Here's the error I'm getting when trying to do a system repair on my acer 6930:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: StartupRepairV2
    Problem Signature 01: AutoFailOver
    Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6001.18000
    Problem Signature 03: 0
    Problem Signature 04: 65537
    Problem Signature 05: unknown
    Problem Signature 06: MissingOsLoader (Note at bottom)
    Problem Signature 07: 0
    Problem Signature 08: 3
    Problem Signature 09: FixBootConfig
    Problem Signature 10: 2
    OS Version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.2561
    Locale ID: 1033

    I saw that message about the missing os loader so I grabbed my father in laws XP PRO cd (which i just realized won't freaking work since I'm running Vista and NOT XP) and tried to install that.... Got the blue screen of death. I tried changing my hd setting in the bios from AHCI to IDE still no success. The BSOD error message was this:

    STOP: 0x0000007B (0XF78D22524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

    That's all I've tried so far... Please help me out. Thanks

    Step Two of that guide I have already tried. I don't have a Vista CD on hand to reinstall (which I think will fix the problem). I did try the automated repair though. Also tried a system restore, but was notified that there was no system restore points found on the computer.
