Vista won't boot up on my main PC and I'm trying to use Vista's Startup Repair feature from the install DVD but my Operating System isn't showing up.
The only option I've seen on forums and Microsoft is to click on "Load Drivers" but what drivers doI load?!!

Obviously it's looking for some inf file about my hardware but I don't know where that is.

Here's the full backstory... I had my hard drive partitioned into drives C & D and I installed Vista Ultimate onto C. for some reason there was some windows information on D and I thought it was from a Dual Boot I did earlier so I wiped partition D and now my computer wont start because somehow startup data was on D. At least I think that's what happened

Please help

One thing that you can do is run the Vista installation as an upgrade (so you do not loose your data).
What kind of hard drive do you have? Vista may not have the proper driver for your hard drive.
