Asked for her Vista install disk 'Dont have one I dont think, unless you mean the recovery disk I made when we got it', Yeah okay that will do the trick.
All we had for a few hours was a black screen, first giving two options to either load windows normally or attempt repair, then another mentioning an error 0x...forgotten...000000f, please use vista install disk and reboot.... WTF, no install disk.
The recovery disk wont boot.
The errors and previous suggestions that we use the recovery console no longer come up, all we get is OS not installed, please insert Install disk and reboot.
Laptop is out of its guarantee.
So we have a dead laptop and a useless recovery disk.
Any ideas (besides mounting a rocket launcher and walking into microsofts brilliant install ideas department who like to save money on a cd).
