I am working on somone's Toshiba laptop that originally came with vista. If I try to reformat and do a clean install of vista, it always errors out. I know it isn't the disk because I've used it on many other computers. It's the Vista all-in-one install disk.
But i decided to try to load XP Pro. loaded flawlessly and runs flawlessly, just don't have all the drivers for the system. it won't let me upgrade from xp pro to home premium. So i started the clean install again from within the xp OS. I've tried it both with and without reformatting.
The installation goes all the way through and doesn't error out. but when it restarts it blue screens when trying to boot vista everytime. I get the error 0x000000F4. any ideas of what it could be? i need some suggestions. and windows repair doesn't work. Thanks.
