I have a serious (unable to start windows at all) problem.
I am installing Vista Business on my machine which was runniing xp pro SP2.
I get a message which I can't read because it only flashes on the screen but it is to the effect that "Vista couldn't be installed - restoring the original system - please do not reboot at this stage"
It reboots and then just loops through start up and reboots again and again and again. I think it has been doing this all night.
I backed up all my files to an external HD using the windows back up utiliy which said it couldn't back up a few files - but these are of no consequence. It asked me to create a back up floppy but unfortunately I don't have a floppy drive on either of my computers.
Also I don't have my windows xp disk for this computer - only an older version which was installed on this computer.
All I want to do is restore the old system and forget about Vist until I get a new machine.
Can anyone help me restore my previous system please.
