    ok windows vista has completely messed up my pc. i have an hp pavillion
    dv5000, i ran the upgrade checker and it said i would be fine. i ran it from
    the cd and it errored on 19% loading the files. i tried extracting the iso
    and running from the hdd and it errored while trying to initialize the drive,
    i then ounted the image with daemon tools and got the same error. now
    everytime i turn on my pc the windows boot manager pops up. it wont roll back
    the installation. i have done a system restore and it has made no difference
    whatsoever. how the **** do i get rid of this?!?!

  2. 1. Did you verify the MD5 checksum of the .iso to be sure it was a good file?
    2. Did you do a true back-up/full hard-drive image?
    3. Were you installing Vista to a separate partition or hard-drive?
