Hey A real problem here: I upgraded my computer to Vista [real copy bought for us by work] but some of the stuff on the pc doesn't work, like the freeview [dvb-t] tuner, sound card etc. I.e. the stuff we're not meant to have. Because of this, i decided to install XP on a hard drive partition. Created a partition and formatted it with vista drive manager -or similar? - and installed Windows XP [XP revalations if that makes sense to anyone, if not i shan't explain for possible legal implications :S i don't really know the rules on this site after all the software got taken off. . . ] So XP installs, and computer restarts and then comes up with an error message "Error loading operating system". Christ only knows how bad that is. . . Any help at all would be greatly appreciated before Monday. Much love everyone.
