Vista Installation issue due to power cut
  

I recently was reinstalling windows vista onto my computer. During installation there was a power cut and installation was stopped mid way through.

When i rebooted i was faced with a message that BOOTMGR is not found.
Not being a complete computer incompetent i tried to boot off the vista discs to reinstall.

The problem is that my computer does not recognise any discs in the drive and the only explanation i can see is that required files for the disc drive have been corrupted or deleted.

As well as this, i do not think that BOOTMGR is the only required file for vista that is missing or corrupted.

Is this fixable with Vista discs by myself or do i need to seek proffesional help?
Any other advice or analysis is welcome

thank you

Re: Vista Installation issue due to power cut

This is the area startup that is missing or corrupted (the boot). Download the Vista repair console.If this option does not solve the problem, use the command Bootrec.exe available with the option Command Prompt Console repair. Then, type these commands.

cd \
cd boot
Bootrec.exe / fixmbr
If no result, use
c:
cd \
cd boot
Bootrec.exe / fixboot
If no result, use
bcdedit / export C: \ BCD_Backup
c:
cd \
cd boot
attrib bcd-s-h-r
ren c: \ boot \ bcd bcd.old
bootrec / RebuildBcd
