    My computer has been completely wiped out and we've been trying to get Vista
    to reinstall on it and everytime we get to the end of it where it is
    installing updates then it pops up stating that "windows could not prepare
    the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install windows,
    restart the installation." Unfortunately everytime I do it I get the same
    problem. I need to know what to do get it fixed. Oh I'm using an Acer Aspire

    If you're installing a retail version of Vista on the Acer system, it likely
    is lacking required supporting drivers for the proprietary build of the
    machine. This is not uncommon, you should be using Acer's recovery software,
    and problems relating to it should be brought to Acer support as the
    recovery methods vary widely by manufacturer.

    Best of Luck,
