Just to be sure whether the Vista is FUBARRED or whether a dualboot was inadvertantly made, what do you see when the PC is booting up ?
Do you see any menu advising Ubuntu etc etc with Windows at the bottom ?
I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.
I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
give us the output of fdisk -l as root and it will let us know if you erased vista or not
i do happen to agree that it's a blessing in disguise
In Greece we have an expression for guys like xxgeronimoxx and in free translation goes like this: "He don't know where goes the 4" and 4 refers to (South - North -East -West)
There's been a few of these types of posts here recently - from people who have booted BackTrack, clicked the install icon on the desktop, followed all of the prompts, presumably clicked Next to the bit about repartitioning the disk, and then wondered why they cant boot Vista any more. Who would have guess that the "install" icon would actually install something....
Told you we needed to make BackTrack more difficult to install.
This would never have happened if that "install" icon wasn't there on the desktop, getting people all confused.
A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
xxgeronimoxx - It sounds like you have two options available to you:
1. Thank God for this serendipitous event and learn how to unlock your inner geek by learning linux
2. Ask uncle M$ to downgrade you to Windows 7 (for a not so nominal fee of course)
