I am trying to do a reformat of my system, and I'm attempting to install the OS (Vista) from a 4 GB USB flash drive, as my DVD drive is iffy at best, and will only respond when it feels like it.
I Googled some information on how to do that and found some good information (or so I thought.) I will admit, I do not have a working Vista DVD any longer so I have an ISO that I downloaded.
So I set up my BIOS boot sequence to boot from the flash drive once I made it bootable, and restarted my laptop. That's when I get the error message "BOOTMGR not found. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del for restart."
My question is: Is there any way I can download BOOTMGR -- from the Microsoft website, maybe? I really need to get my laptop running with Vista 32-bit because at the moment, it's running 64 bit and it obviously can't handle it (I'm having several issues.)
Thanks in advance for any help!
