My laptop died over the weekend, having managed to resurrect the hard drive (its only 7 months old) I got it to boot from the CD and I clicked on "install now" instead of the repair computer option.
Is there an easy way to get rid of the new install of Vista and then get the old version repaired, so that I don't have to set everything up again? Its saved windows, program files folders etc in a Windows.old folder. Would it just be a matter of copying these folders back out of the windows.old folder, or is there a better or more recommended way of doing it?
Its Vista Home Premium, on a Dell Inspiron 1545
