My moms laptop boots up and then goes into startup repair. It has a error and says "this computer cannot be fixed automatically"
And says in report details
And other stuff..
The computer has a lot of problems lately and I just want to install windows and or in place upgrade..
I used vista repair disk and tryed that to repair and it says same error.
I have tried safe mode and everything an it always boots into startup repair.. I also tried the tut on forums how to fix infinite startup repair loop. Didn't work
If I got a vista install disk could I do a inplace upgrade and would it fix problem?
I can't boot into windows AT ALL.
I would really like to avoid clean install..
Does windows need to be booted to do inplace upgrade?
Or would I have to do a clean install?
I don't have access to my product key.. I was pre installed and the sticker on computer is from a previous install, could I use that product key since its on same laptop?
Please help this is URGENT!! It's my moms work and she needs it fixed ASAP or we won't be in a house soon
