Hi there ,I'm new here so excuse me if I'm making any kind of mistakes
I have a windows Vista Ultimate X86 SP1 installed on my Lenovo t61 which came actually with xp pro sp2 and I got some problems with it so I formatted it then installed vista ultimate and all that happened about two years ago
The problem started last week when I was using Internet usually and suddenly on of nvidia's tasks got stuck and the screen got black and returned back with a crash report (task has stopped working and was recovered successfuly or somethign like it) and kept happening so I decided to restart it but when I rebooted it gave me an error whih id don't rememberand rebooted again and I managed to reach the safe mode and tried to make a system restore but I couldn't so I rebooted and put vista DVD but It didn't boot because of some booting program and I booted again on the safe mode the I deleted that program and some programs the rebooted
windows didn't boot so i used this command in command Prompt "bootfix" adn couple commands which I got from some site, then I rebooted and I got this error:

Invalid boot.ini file
booting from c:/ windows

and it didn't boot the windows or reboot it just gave me a black screen an I couldn't even restart using alt+ctrl+del so I removed the battery and the AC and booted Vista DVD then I went to the startup recovery, it started looking for a problem and gae me a message "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically" and the problbem details are:
Problem signature :
ProblemEvent name: StartupRepairV2
Problem signature 01: ExternalMedia
Problem signature 02: 6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.18000
Problem signature 03: 6
Problem signature 04: 786445
Problem signature 05: CorruptAcl
Problem signature 06: CorruptAcl
Problem signature 07: 0
Problem signature 08: 1
Problem signature 09: FixAcl
Problem signature 10: 0
OS Version: 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256
Locale ID: 1033


and nothing in the advaanced options works system restore tells me that there is no restore points created while I didn't delete any restore point since a long time ago so I have one of three options :
1: your solutions (hopefully)
2: a fromat
3: to pt extrnal HDD ad install windows on it then copying it to the internal HDD
oh I almost forgot to tell that I'm well aware that same problem is posted here but the none of the provided solutions worked with me and that problem was with xp home

finally here is my computers specs:
Lenovo T61
C2D t7300 2.0 4mbL2cache
2gb of ram
120GBHDD(30GB for the C with the installed sys on it)

andif it's gonna be usefull, those are the commands I used t remove the boot program:
mbr_rest /nt60 c:
attrib c:\vstaldr -r -h -s
attrib c:\menu.lst -r -h -s
del c:\vstaldr
del c:\menu.lst

and I'm sorry for my grammer you know nobody is perfect

no you don't get it I can't boot to windows at all so I won't be able to create a backup or a restore point and even using startup repair was useless
isn't there anyway to remove booting data and create a new one using cmd? that's what I'm asking for
thanks anyway

Hi, that error is related to XP, you say you formatted the HDD then installed Vista? Something is wrong Vista does not have a boot.ini file as such. You should be able to access a command prompt you said you were able to run startup repair just go beyond this and run command prompt. At the prompt type:-

Code:
bootrec.exe /fixboot press enter
bootrec.exe /fixmbr  press enter
Then type exit  press enter Reboot

I did ram test from vista dvd but it didn't give me any problem
and look I can boot to vista in safe mode so I don't think the problem is caused by the ram, so any ideas?

I'm not sure about this but i believe most of the problem is solved now and what i did:
1.deleted boot program
2.used jenae's commands:"bootrec.exe /fixboot" "bootrec.exe /fixmbr"
3.uninstalled nvidia gpu driver in safe mode
4.ran windows normally
and yes it worked but I'm facing another problem at the moment so if can'tf ix it myself i'll post here
and thanks for the help everyone
