Hi Asim,

You won't get much help if you use pirated software.

I understand you had a legitimate copy installed first, and only used the pirated copy in desperation to try to fix the problem?

Do not use pirated versions of windows for any purpose.

I suppose you unplugged the new usb drive and tried the repair options on the Vista dvd, or the NST recovery cd download?

To do that, boot the Vista dvd/ NST recovery cd , windows loading files - select language and keyboard- you get a screen saying Install Now - do not click that.

At the bottom of the same screen, it says Repair my computer - click on that.
