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!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
