Several issues with Unmountable_boot_volume and unable to get it to read the recovery disk by LUCKYGIRL[_2_]
I have a new desktop, less than a year old. Today I was in the middle of my work day and the computer just froze. It has done that from time to time. I could not do a normal reboot so I had to do a hard boot. At first it looked like it was able to read the Windows files but then it just went to a black screen with a cursor and hung on that until I did another hard reboot. I was able to get into...

Home Prem x64 SP2 RC1 wrong HD order by DarthNeo
This is the second desktop computer I am putting together and installing Vista on. I discovered that on both (different motherboards, CPUs, HDs) Vista reverses HD order during install. I know exactly what HD is connected to SATA socket 1 (socket 0 is for SATA DVD writer) and which is connected to socket 3. BIOS shows them correctly as SCSI-0 and SCSI-1. Yet Vista persistently calls the...

VISTA on boot ignores all optical drives by charliko
I am wondering if my BIOS would keep the boot up from recognizing the optical drives and allowing the optical drive to boot up. Needless to say, installing anything gets tough with this problem. I am hoping someone will have some ideas...I want to install unbuntu as a dual boot with VISTA. Thanks in advance, Charlie Post Originated from http://www.VistaForums.com Vista Support Forums

Vista external usb drive issue by cugamer
Greetings all I just build my first home built system, and I didn't screw it up :). I've installed Windows Vista Business 64 bit which I got for free since I'm a student which is a plus and it's been mostly smooth sailing except for one issue which is driving me insane. I have a WD 640gig external HD and every time I connect it Vista searches for the drivers, and then tells me it can't find...

Any chance my monitor will work with Vista? by pdsnickles
I have a Dell 1901FP Flat Panel Color Monitor. I just bought a new HP computer using Vista Premium 64bit but am debating whether or not to keep it now that I see so many issues with 64bit Vista. I went to the Driver Download page at Dell for my monitor and it has a driver listed for download for XP but none for Vista. I guess that means they have no driver for Vista so it won't work, right? So...
