Dec 2013? - put your win 8 disc in the drive - switch/log off - switch on - it should load from disc and click on repair.

As you've reinstalled Vista, go to Computer, double click the C: drive and see if you've a folder called Windows old. If it's there then that is where your documents will be.

If you formatted the drive before installing Vista then you won't have the Windows Old folder.
