• Window Vista Will not completely Boot


    Gets to the eye screen and no farther. Safe mode boot goes to storport.sys. Repair system like this loading system then the eye and it stays there. ot

    Cpu AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core Ql-64 2.1Ghz

    Gateway NV52 Series

    632 Memory

    Any question will be answered best I can. I want this computer to boot as Vista, not 7 and DEFINITELY NOT 10!

      Here are a few questions that I hope will help to narrow down the possible source of the problem.

      What was the last thing that you did with that PC before the problem started? For example, did you install a new program, or update (patch) an existing one, or add or change some hardware (like memory or a graphics card)?

      Could there have been a power outage or a power spike since the last time it worked and when it started acting up?

      Do you have access to a different computer? It may come in handy for purposes of downloading diagnostics software or to hook up the Vista PC’s hard drive.

      Do you have a backup image of the hard drive that, if all else fails, you could install in place of what you have now?

      A catch 22. I tryed a boot 7 repair USB and it “froze”. I have made progress as it will live boot a Live Linux USB. Memory and hard drive exchanged. It might have a overheating problem but even cool, still has trouble booting to the repair. Can someone maybe walkthough the create Usb process?

      To create a bootable USB you need an ISO of the thing you want to boot and a program to write the ISO to the USB.
      I use Rufus to do the writing.

      cheers, Paul
