ISO Question

I used a Vista ISO for my hp 530 so should I reinstall all the drivers?

The ISO was in a hidden ISO folder that came with my HP.

The reason I ask this is because I'm getting an error that says," Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer, then restart the installation."

Just to be sure: you burned the image on the ISO to the disc, right? Not just the ISO file itself?

Some people extract the ISO and dont burn it as a ISO file.

Are you sure that the disk you created can be used to install and is not just a driver disk or other system disk?

This is the ISO I used. It's by HP and came with the computer and below is the new problem I am having =]






So on start up installation I get an error that says," System registry contains invalid file paths. Installation cannot proceed. This system image was applied without guaranteeing that drive-letter assignments would match across computers."

With that being said I think the problem is that my drive letters aren't matching up. Like for example, my C is D and my D is C .

What should I do to fix this?

Srry for flooding the forum with the same stuff =[

If an OS clone has acquired the wrong letter which clashes with its registry "memory" of its old incarnation, you can use this registry hack to fix it.

"Also how to registry hack if you cant log into the os?"

Sorry, thats the problem with coming to a thread late on, and not reading the back-posts.
But the argument is sort of backwards.
You can't have a letter problem if you haven't created the OS yet. Letters are just registry entries. The registry doesn't exist till the OS does.
That hack works on Vista /W7 even when they won't boot (if that's the only problem). They get just far enough into the OS to enable running regedit.
