I have HP pavillion DV6-1256tx laptop having windows vista sp1 32 bits.
I am not able to recover my window from recovery disks/partition. Its giving CTOERROR.flg.
Both recovery disks and recovery partition are failing to install it.
So, i thought of installing it by creating bootable dvd/cd from standalone iso file for vista sp1.
Need to know is it possible to install fresh windows vista sp1 like this.
Was that Vista x86 sp1 which O/S version and was it sp1 factory or did you update it to sp1 vista? Not knowing which version you have will make it harder to fix since there were different O/S version and if you download the wrong version or a sp1 version and you don’t have the registration for it that won’t fix your problem. You best choice would try to reorder the recover cd/dvd first and then if you want to go to windows 7 buy a retail O/S version and do your own custom installation to have the latest 7 version. But not knowing which version of vista x86 sp1 or not will be hard to give more help with…
