    clean. Then but the OS cd. I did try to statup reapair off the cd.

    So what your saying is you used a program to wipe the drive completely and
    then partitioned (?) it.
    With the Vista CD you would need to format those partitions ...or if the
    partitions
    are not visible to Vista you need to partition and format with the Vista CD
    the following website has detailed instructions with screenshots
