The device is not ready?

#1
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. Having a seriuos boot issue with my toshiba laptop. I currently can not boot windows vista 32 in any way. The supprt disc is not helpful. When i click on startup reapir it sits there for hours saying "attempting repairs."Ive let it sit overnight for 8 hours with no change. I am currently tring to take the manuall approach as out lined in the recovery manual. However, when i type in F:\bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force i recive the following information: The device is not ready?????? Any ideas on what i'm doing wrong??? Thanks for your help!!!!!!
