    To all,

    I installed the Vista SP1 which is downloaded to my computer and after
    that the disk is not bootable. This is the first time it happens. From
    now on, I have to do an image back up of my disk before I update
    anything. I have Vista Ultimate.

    Any body has any idea in how to bring the disk back to the previous
    version w/o SP1. It keeps going back to the safe mode,... normal boot
    screen. Seems like a device problem with the SP1.
