Heres my problem, i decided to install windows xp on a windows vista laptop, so i followed all of the steps and everything went fine until my battery died =/ I have a windows vista cd but its all scratched up and my laptop wont read it, also im not able to boot, when i start my laptop it says bootmngr missing. I decided to make a windows vista ultimate cd [yeah i know its wrong but i have no other choice] and anyway this cd that i made says that some files could not be found or are either corrupted. Does anyone have any suggestions on what i should do. Help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
