Thanks for the help! I got the disk cleared the way you recommended. But now when I try and put Vista on the laptop it just says "No Operating System Found" or something. It's like the BIOS boot menu doesn't work. I tried booting from CD and from a flash drive and it just keeps saying this over and over. Any help from here would be awesome? I have tried to different Vista CD's, an XP disc and tried both of them on a flash drive, its like the laptop wont boot anything other than the HD.
