Well my compaq Presario
CQ60 cannot boot up at all. My dumb decision to change the primary boot up harddrive
. It was partitioned out of 1 harddrive. I tried running the repair CD and it just hangs on the loading screen. If it gets past that it sticks on a black screen. Changing bios or trying to boot up in a different way doesnt change anything. It just hangs and stays there. I need to completely wipe the harddrive or anything to boot up again. Please Help.

Do you have a Vista installation disc?

Boot it, choose "Repair your computer", "Command Prompt" and type

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot

Currently my harddrive is formatted and ready to install any OS> My dilemma right now is that when i run my Windows 2000 Professional Setup CD, only one i have. The laptop freezes during "Starting Windows 2000 Setup Files" It just stays there and does nothing. But i can easially turn it off at the press of the power button. Any help?

You can grab an (unofficial) Windows Vista Recovery Disc here. http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vist...-disc-download/

I have used it and it is safe, NeoSmart are the creators of the EasyBCD multiboot utility.
