Can you set the BIOS to boot to CD and boot your Vista CD?

Alrighty, tried 2 different vista CDs, and neither one would boot, still getting stuck in the Bios... I would bring it into the repair shop, but i dont think they would get any further then we could........

Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet and remove the CMOS battery for a half hour or so.

maybe try without the keyboard plugged in?

disable the quick boot in the BIOS, and check for an "HALT ON" and change to ALL ERRORS if possible.

just some things i found from the net.

Nah, don't toss it off a bridge. Beat it with a baseball bat. It would feel more satisfying.

Did you enter the BIOS and enable the failsafe settings, then save and exit?

Are you using IDE Hardrives or SATA Hardrives?

If you are using IDE Hardrives and you have the jumpers conflicting (Say you have a Hardrive and a CD Drive on the same IDE Channel both set to master,It will freeze at the bios).
