Need Vista CD to correct Error. Cannot Boot System. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Acer Aspire T671 desktop with Vista installed. Acer does not provide an OS CD. I have not received an answer
    from Acer yet.
    I have the problem with the Control Panel not being accessable. I had requested the Hotfix(929637) from MS but they said they were not giving it out at this time. (probably because SP1 is out).
    So I put in my Rescue Discs, and it came back with an error saying it can't continue.
    When I ReBoot, it asks for the CD to correct the error.

    My question is can I get a CD without having to pay for it, or is there a way to format the hard drive without it.

    In any case I'm going to install XP as soon as I get some answers.

    Thanks John
