Windows Vista - after the RESTORE partition HARD drive: WINDOWS COULD NOT COMPLETE the INSTALLATION. TO INSTALL WINDOWS ON THIS COMPUTER, RESTART THE INSTALLATION
I have WINDOWS VISTA and just tried to reinstall my laptop of restoration on a HARD disk partition.
The restore went through, but then I got the error: WINDOWS COULD NOT COMPLETE the INSTALLATION. TO INSTALL WINDOWS ON THIS COMPUTER, RESTART THE INSTALLATION
When I press 'OK' (which is the only option), it tries to start again, until I get the same error through the black screen.
How can I get out of this loop please?
For any problem with the help of the recovery Partition that has been copied to the hard disk by the computer manufacturer, you must contact them.
This recovery process is the manufacturer, not Microsoft.
You never told us why you wanted to do a restore. If you had serious errors and the recovery process does not work, you will have hardware problems. BUT we're only guessing at this stage due to lack of information to help you.
See you soon.
After Vista update cannot find the external hard drive, AutoPlay does not work, and new unusable disk appears under my computer. Also I can't 'manage' my computer because I do not have "permissions". I tried a fix he 45071 and it did nothing.
Applications, (Norton and McAfee) (including free evaluation versions are notorious for not not upgrade (or uninstalling) itself.) If NIS has been installed for 3 years, you have NIS update at least once and maybe twice (e.g., NIS 2009 > NIS 2010 > NIS 2011).
[You may want to print these instructions for reference offline. If a step said to reboot, reboot.]
1. download the Norton Removal Tool, save it to your desktop: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe
2. close all open applications (that is, anything with an icon on the taskbar).
3. After completing some you have a copy of your handy product key, uninstall all Norton software (including LiveUpdate and everything Norton Add ons) viaControl Panel | Programs | Uninstall a program (or Control Panel |) Programs and features, if you are using the classic view).
4 IMPORTANT! -Online activate Windows Firewall immediately after the restart.
NB: Now you're "working without a net": no to ANYTHING else online (e.g., navigation, reading e-mail, chat) until you have completed step #7 below!
5. right click on the file that you saved in step #1 above, and then select run as administrator. DO TAP not your keyboard until the race ends, then restart.
6. do a clean install of NIS 2011 (using your product ID, if need be) & reboot. CF. http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080514162318EN
NOTE: Do NOT activate or install additional modules of Norton (for example, Norton Anti-Phishing) immediately.
8. open Internet Explorer (only) to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 & run the difficulty.
9. open Internet Explorer (only) to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058 & run that set it by DEFAULT and modes and AGGRESSIVE. 
10. restart once again & test.
NB: Installation KB971029 disables AutoRun/autoplay on USB connected but not 'brilliant media' external drives (i.e., CDs & DVDs). See http://blogs.technet.com/b/msrc/archive/2011/02/08/deeper-insight-into-the-security-advisory-967940-update.aspx
 full Disclosure: the difficulty operating in AGGRESSIVE mode will remove your update history but not list the updates installed in Add/Remove Programs (Windows XP) or installed updates.

Cannot back up the external hard drive "snapshot could not be created, please check the VSS application log and the PSP" "details - the shadow copy provider had an error" error code «ox81000019» I want to buy a new laptop, but how can I transfer all of the existing computer if I can't do a backup?
As you go only to transfer data from one to the other files, here's a good option...
Remove the old hard drive and connect it on the new computer using a USB to SATA connector like this...
It is a very useful device to have some kicking around when you need to get data on a drive that does more boot.
You must get permission to access folders on the old disk to the new computer and this is how you do it.
Download the zip on the site below...
.. and it is there that find the link to the zip on the site...
When you run the zip file, it places a new item in the right click menu called 'Take Ownership'
To use it, you highlight the file or the folder on which you want the property, right click and select take ownership.
Then a window will appear and many data authorizations through pretty quickly. When permissions have been granted, the window will close and you will be able to easily access data in the file or the first selected folder...

Hi, I am using the windows 7 Home premium with Sony Vaio netbook. This message appears when I've been windows installation since it is newly purchased, "Windows could not complete the installation. To install windows on this computer, run the Setup again"when I click ok, and then the computer restarts automatically and then come back to this message. I reboot several times but the result was always the same. Home premium to Windows 7 has been with the netbook already, so I don't have the Disc... can someone help me solve this problem? Thank you very much
My colleague has had a similar problem when she came back to the States with a new Vaio from Sony, I didn't just run recovery and reinstall Windows and its worked good since. She even gave me a hug for fixing.
The problem seems to be the OOBE which would suggest its more hardware than windows, but I understand your nature, you want to be right about everything.

I have a serial number valid for windows Vista Home Basic, but my hard drive crashed and I have no way to re - install vista on my computer. I am looking for a download so I can do it.
Basically, I installed windows 2000 on my machine and I can't find a download for windows vista home basic that doesn't have some kind of crack or keygen. I want a legal copy not a hack. I have the serial number supplied with my computer. where can I find this download or get a drive.
Here are all LEGAL for Vista:
How to get Vista recovery Media or the Vista recovery Partition on your computer back to factory settings.
There is no Vista free download legal available.
Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.
Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.
In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.
See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.
Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...
Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.
Ask them if you can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.
They will tell you how to do this.
Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.
Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.
There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.
If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):
Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.
At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
MS advice on the conduct of clean install.
A tutorial on the use of a clean install
Super Guide Windows Vista Installation
After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.
Save all data, because it will be lost during a clean installation.

What are the BCD entries to TWO instances of dual boot of Vista professional in TWO separate hard drives? -Dell Vostro 1710, my wife had to be returned to Dell, I installed its Vostro hard drive in my Dell Vostro 1710 SAME, but I don't get a menu starting double when I turn on my Vostro.

The easiest way is to use the DualBoot Pro. He has the tools to write the necessary code automatically. It is excellent for managing the tasks you want to do.
However, you have a potential license problem. Even if your Dell has the exact code in the BIOS to activate the copy of Windows on the hard drive of your wife, the computer is only allowed for an OEM copy. If Dell is back after repairs then you should be OK once you have turned on the hard disk in his computer of your wife. You can delete the entry of additional start with DualBoot Pro menu,
