it was a win98 boot disk!! im still baffled how it kept installing. this has really got me confuses. my head is hurting just thinking about it(no joke). im getting drivers right now, both XP\Vista Chipset\Video. and with my slow internet should be a while before i get them all.
Well that is weird! There no way it could have carried on with a 98 boot disk!

Heres some rep for you

Definitely five years, I remember it well because I got my first computer that year, a laptop, pre-loaded with XP Home.

thats what i though when it started booting, then when i restarted and took the disk out i was stunned to see that windows worked 100%. im thinking it was a precaution to have to keep a windows cd in at all type, and the file it read was probably one that was on the bootdisk.

thanks for the rep, but it isnt showing up , either that or you and fisher combined dont give out 9 points, otherwise i would have the weird 6th bar.

keep it that way though, i rather have 5 clean bars than 5 clean bars and 1 retarded bar


EDIT

got vista working now
my first try in the install ended up with a BSOD
