I have an ADVENT 9117 with windows vista. it was very slow and thus I have started FULL DESTRUCTIVE RECOVERY. But after that it always opens the repair and recovery window. Can I get any suggestion to start windows normally?

Does this article help you? it was written for Win7 but should apply to Vista.

If you have the vista system disk, you could try starting from disk and select repair, this should -unless you have wiped it- activate the hidden sector on your harddrive and restore Vista to factory defaults.

If you do not have a Vista disk,try to borrow one and use your own licence number when requested.
