no I was not prompted to do anything. I figured out how to bypass it and luckally all my old stuff was still there. I tried it again and I got the error code 0xc0000142. needless to say it still didn't work. I am trying to use the reinstall cd that dell sent with my computer. I did some looking around and I think my first problem is I do not know how to boot off of the cd, I've been booting and then after windows starts running the cd.
my computer is a dell studio 1537. it's got a intel core 2, 4gb of ram. 32 bit vista home premium.
