It trying to boot from a network drive because it cannot find your hard drive

1st try removing and refitting the hard drive to remake the connections.

OK now hard drive is running again It looks as if you have some corruption of windows files.

Will the VIsta CD allow you to run a startup repair or is it a recovery CD that will return tha machine to factory settings?
