scaned computer with every antivirus live cd known to man no threats or viruses, ran an MBR check all good, ran a disk check came back healthy, scaned the internet for solutions and found i need to get into the bcd to maybe edit it but have no way of getting to a command prompt to run bcdedit, I need to know is there a way to get to command prompt, F8 is not an option, it boots straight to error screen, have not got a repair disk or original Vista DVD for a repair or re-install. Need a program that will run before windows starts but will mount the drive to make changes any suggestions would greatly appreciated.

So the F8 won't work at all to get you into Safe Mode?

 

And you can't get it to startup to Run: sfc /scannow?

 

There is Vista Recovery Disc out there if you Google it.

You can use this tutorial to create a Vista Recovery Disc.
