Help when I start up Windows Vista Home Premium I get then error
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. 1. Insert Windows Vista Installation DVD 2. Click Repair your cumputer 3. Click Fix start up problems File:/Windows/system32/winload.exe Status: 0xc000000f
I have tried all of the above. Have DVD. I am very experienced. Thanks

What exactly have you tried? Start up repair? Running Chkdsk /f from a command prompt? Checking that Winload.exe is pointing to the correct partition where Vista is loaded? Copying winload. exe from one machine to another?
