Failed to format the selected partition (Error: 0x80004005) by Mike K
I had 3 partitions on my SATA, i deleted one to install RC1 but when i tried to format it it gave me error "error 0x800424f". this sounds similar. I will try to reformat the entire drive and let you know if that worked. "Clothears" wrote: I haven't installed any additional drivers. Since the installer has accurately read the partition table, what could usefully be additionally loaded?...

2 vista disks doesn't work? by John[_28_]
I have a Vista and also a cloned vista for backup. After about 4 days something happened so I booted from the old vista. About 50% of the files on the new vista got copied over by the old vista. Why does this happen? Strangest thing was my email (thunderbird). The email files got SWITCHED! The old went to the new and vice versa. That isn't easy to do. I also lost my nice new desktop and...

Vista 32 and 64 bit dual boot by ElHombre86
Hi, I have Vista 32 bit installed on my system and was wondering how do I go about setting a dual boot with Vista 64 bit, so that I can choose either OS at boot. I have a 500 gb hard drive and plan on using 100 or more for the partition. Any ideas? Virtual machines are not an option! Oh, and I do have two Vista licenses. -- ElHombre86

New PC doesn't boot after Vista Install by Steve_BZ
Hi Guys, after buying a new Megaware/ASUS PC with Vista Home Premium in Portuguese, I reinstalled, first my old XP in English (no boot) and then Vista Ulimate in English also no boot. The installation works fine and installs to my SATA c-drive, but then when I reboot, nothing. I read somewhere that SATA drivers are not provided with Vista (and therefore I guess not with XP either), and you have...

Okay I'm banging my head off the wall trying to figure this one out. I've got a Sony SATA DVD/CD burner drive plugged in to an EVGA 790i Ultra MoBo connected to a Western Digital 300gb VelociRaptor SATA HD and each component is fresh out of the box. Vista is the first OS I've tried to load on this machine. Every time I try to load Vista x64 Ultimate onto my hard drive I get an error message...

Application Lost after upgrade by Maurice
This is a 2.66Ghz laptop with 2GB memory. Office 2007 installed months earlier. Machine upgraded to Vista Ultimate from XP Pro. The machine no longer shows Office 2007 as an application. How can one troubleshoot this? Could the files be on windows.old? Guidance sought on this and what is contained in windows.old.

To have both the 32bit and 64bit versions running on the same PC with you only needing to...
