I have a laptop with only dos installed on the h-drive. I have the CD containing Vista but am not sure how to get this to install.
I have got as far as
D:\ dir/p
and not sure where to go from here,

All help much appreciated,

If the laptop is capable of running Vista, set the BIOS to boot from the CD drive, insert the Vista disk and restart the laptop. The installation should then start.

Please note the vista installation is normally a DVD and you will need a dvd drive.
As above but to get to the bios screen as pc starts look for "to enter setup" press normally del or f2 button and look in settings for boot order make cd/dvd first hard drive second
