Evesham went under some years ago. Assuming it's XP and the sticker is still on the case, you just need to borrow a CD from someone. If stuck, they are regularly for sale on ebay.

You could try tapping F8 on boot up. That may get you to a recovery option (if Vista was pre-loaded into a recovery partition).

P.S. If no recovery partition (and it may be F12 or some other key) the advice for XP applies, except you'll need a Vista disc from mate or ebay.

Did the Evesham come with any drivers on a disc (floppy even)? I suspect that you don't have a driver installed to run the drive to read the Vista disc.

I'm now puzzled - what did you mean in your earlier post "it is Vista home basic I've tried loading" - how and from what?

No, they have to be the same version.
