problems booting - solved

So, i just bought the neosmart recovery cd, and i ma quite clueless. I googled how to work it, because my computer will not start correctly, and my system restore is not helping :frowning:. So, i went to the "Recovering the Vista or Windows 7 Bootloader from the DVD" and tried all three steps. One and two got nowhere, three seemed to be working.. then i got to the part where is says, "bcdedit.exe /store c:\boot\bcd.temp /create {bootmgr} /d "Windows Boot Manager" When i try to type this into my command prompt, "The specified store parameter is not valid". So I am stuck here, please help. Thank you

Make sure you typed it correctly. Pay close attention to the curly brackets (not parentheses) and the slashes (backwards not forwards).
how to i make this thread solved? i ended up finding some vista recovery disks for a laptop of the same manufacturer so now i may be running on a laptop os... but it is working fine i guess.
