I have a young friend who attempted to upgrade is OS from WIN XP Home Premium to WIN Vista Home. After the upgrade he gets a black screen stating: "Windows failed to start.....1) Insert you Windows Installation Disc & restart your computer, 2) Choose a language and press enter, 3) Click repair your computer. Under Tools it listed Windows Memory Diagnostic. My yound friend doesn't have the system discs that came with the computer. What I was going to do was find a Windows XP recovery disc and put his system back to WIN XP and start the upgrade to Vista for him. I can't tell if he installed Vista on a partioned HD and now has a dual-boot problem or what he did? I think the black screen also stated that Vista was corrupt.
