    i installed windows xp about a year ago and was getting board of it so installed windows vista about 3 months ago, my xp messed up and so i formatted the xp hard drive, as i rebooted my pc to make sure it worked it came up with bootdisk faliure press any key to restart

    i inserted the vista disk and went to cmd i typed all the following

    --it found the vista c;\windows
    --The operation completed succsesfully
    --Element not found
    --[1] C;\WINDOWS
    --Add installation to boot list? yes<y>/no<n>/all<a>

    now from here i pressed y, n, a, <y> ect. and it comes up with
    --Element not found.
