  1. I'll try on this forum.

    Hi guys,

    I downloaded and burned Debian 507 to CD (needed that to run a server) and I tried to install it. I got confused about the installation so I shut down the setup.
    When I tried to reboot my laptop again, it shows Packard Bell Recovery Management.

    I can't start my OS anymore, and the Recovery Management is unable to find the OS, so also unable to recover. I don't have a copy of the Vista installation CD.
    Im afraid I accidentally made some changes during the Debian setup progress but I have no idea how to undo/restore them.

    I am using an old PC now to post this message.

    Have you got a vista recovery cd if not you can download it from here it will be a torrent so you will need something like utorrent to get the iso image then burn it to a cd then you are good to go
