Well the citadel of evil have struck again
We have 2 laptops at home running Vista, and as per Microsoft advice I waited till they offered Vista SP1
via Windows Update before loading it.
The first PC a Siemens crashed and went into an endless cycle of trying to boot and failing, so as per the screen suggestion, I loaded in the Vista CD rom and repaired it from there - hey presto it worked - phew.
So when the Acer promted me to install SP1 I thought well it cannot be as bad as the Siemens, well it was, bloddy well much worse. It's stuck in an endless loop and even the repair function from the Vista Disc does not fix it, occasionally it tells me it cannot fix it would I like to reprt this to microsoft - well if a Pc can report this to microsoft when it won't even boot i would be impressed. I hope I do not have to go to the system back up discs and start again - All my data is on the internet but it's just such a pain in the arse!!
