XP to Vista

  Chrissib 16:04 19 Jun 2009

Got a Vista LapTop which is not booting, but have an XP disc which I could probably use for repair. But assuming this works, can I upgrade back to Vista without a Vista disc.

Regards Chrissib

Better to use the recovery partition if your laptop has one (it may be hidden).

Alternatively, if you can post back exactly what happens when it fails to boot, someone may be able to advise a course of action that doesn't require reloading the operating system.

Best to do as OTT_Buzzard advises.
