error c000000e winload.exe fix for vista

#1
hello forum

this is a strange issue, the vista is booting properly, i've found this error in system recovery using f11 key options

don't know if i should be truly concerned, but in an attempt to access vista recovery i'm met with error c000000e, winload.exe missing

researched this and it seems error c000000e only applies to win7, i warrant a correction

win7 was previously installed on the presario i'm using unsuccessfully which required me to factory reset to vista

i'm wondering if win7 still exist on the c drive, in registry or otherwise and how to completely clean it

i can send screenshots if needed

any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated

thank you for reading

Unless you formatted the drive before installing Vista again then yes there can easily be some left of the previous installs.
