Vista will not boot from HDD or CD


Village Idiot
Updated Vista yesterday and on restarting the computer it got to installing update 3 of 3 then keeps restarting.

Tried to boot from CD but after a few files were installed nothing.

After a while it says cannot find drive. then nothing.

I have tried safe mode, last known good etc but to no avail.

Any ideas anyone?

Many thanks for the link, it will come in useful.

I eventually got around the problem by installing vista on my second HDD and reformatted the problem hard drive. A bit drastic but was all I could think of at the time.

I will be more careful during windows update in future!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
