Repairing Vista at startup

Ask a question
It may happen that Windows Vista does not want to start in normal mode or even in safe mode. Below is a small trick for repairing boot vista:
  • First of all, start your PC with the installation DVD of Vista.
  • Press F12 to boot the list of device and select the cd drive.
  • If you can not find the key, then go to the BIOS:
  • Press any key when the system prompts you to.
  • Wait while loading and click on Next.
  • Click on Repair your computer > Next
  • Click the Startup Repair
  • Wait for repair and then restart your PC.


Note: It is possible that the repair does not work the first time, no panic, repeat handling several times if necessary until the boot is properly repaired.
