Re: Unable to install vista after installing windows 7 X64 and upgrading bios

trying to install vista by one key recover?

if you made any changes on volumes, okr stops working and you'll get error.

try to make a clean install for vista if you have windows dvd, not recovery disks.

plus if you have still windows 7 on your system, it is impossible to install vista before un-install windows 7. ( for dual boot )

if you are trying to install from recovery partititon, you can not install it because you have deleted recovery partition.

if you have recovery backup dvds, try to install with them, if both doesn't work, i suggest to contact lenovo support due to resetting your hard disk for default . ( or installing recovery volume )

if you have microsoft windows installation dvd, a clean install fix your boot.

still try to get your computer start by pressing one key recover button, or press f8 and select boot fix.
