Hmm where should i start.....I tried to install xp onto my already vista pc earlier today to play some games not supported by vista anymore..after encountering a few problems i.e. partions etc i finally managed to install xp and get my wish of the old games. trouble is i could not boot back into vista. It gets worse. I tried to use the vista repair tool but it failed to find any OS on my pc so i decided to make a fresh install of vista as it told me i would get my old vista files and settings in a folder. Is there any possible way of using this folder to put my vista install back into its old state? Im not that techy and to lose all my mail and the countless things i cant even remember back manually from this folder seems an impossible and hugely time consuming task. Can anyone pls help?
