Windows Vista - Home Premium
Re-install Operating System
Computer: Acer Aspire T180 Desktop - Purchased February 2007 from PC World
O/S : Windows Vista Home Premium
My system is running really slow, particularly booting up and shutting down. I am trying to put it back to the original factory settings.
I have a Recovery Disc that I would have made when I purchased the PC. When I put this in the drive and re-start the PC I use F12 to enter the set-up and select "Boot from CD".
The system starts to work but then after about 1 min a message appears.
" Windows could not start due to an error while booting from a ramdisk. Windows failed to open the ramdisk image.
File STCDBoot.ISO could not be loaded. The error code is 32768 "
I can not recall exactly what I did to create the recovery disc but I would have followed the instructions and I have also written a password on the cover.
I also have a Windows Anytime Upgrade disc that came with the PC. My intention is to put the PC back to factory settings in order to get rid of any previous used programs or files that are slowing it down. I defrag etc on a regular basis and have Windows Live Onecare to keep everything update.
Any assistance would be most appreciated.
