How do I edit files to reinstall Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • My install of the Vista Business edition crashed my computer. I tried to reinstall, but the PID key would not activate again. It's been 

    weeks since it ran all the way to the start menu.


    How do I edit files to reinstall Vista, or replace it with XP Pro?

    I found my own error with the Vista Business installation.


    While installing the business edition of

    Vista, I used a PS2 mouse. When I went back to work on the computer I inadvertantly plugged in a usb corded mouse.


    It took all that time for me to discover the program didn't recognize the USB mouse! I switched the mouse, and all is well now.


    I hate to admit this dimb error, but hope that it helps others with the same problems.
