I'm currently having a problem with my bosses PC. It will not boot into Vista.
I have booted into safe mode and tried to rool it back to a restore point.
This has not helped.

I have also tried using Startup Repair on the Vista DVD which fails and
gives me the following report:
-----------------------------------------------------------
Problem Event Name : StartupRepairV2
Problem Signature 01: ExternalMedia
Problem Signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6000.16386
Problem Signature 03: 2
Problem Signature 04: 65537
Problem Signature 05: unknown
Problem Signature 06: NoRootCause
Problem Signature 07: 0
Problem Signature 08: 2
Problem Signature 09: WrpRepair
Problem Signature 10: 2
OS Version : 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID : 1033
----------------------------------------------------------------

Can anybody help??

if you can't recover or repair you may have a bad drive and a clean install
is next with a new drive.
Just a guess.
