i would try backing up all your data to an external drive, then formatting the internall HDD and then install vista. After thats installed reinstall linux followed by your data.

Are you booting from the disc?

You may need to enter the BIOS and make the CD/DVD-ROM the first device in the boot order to be able to boot from the disc.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
