    I know it seems kind of rubbish, but I seem to have botched a simple reformat.
    I have an Acer desktop that had Vista Home Premium on it, as such I have the key but like normal they don't sell the recovery CD with the computer. No problem, I downloaded the Vista ISO and tried to boot from CD....It's stuck in an infinate loop with a loading bar and a @Microsoft Corporation thingy.. Do I need something else on the CD with my iso to boot it, or have I turned my desktop in to an expensive paperweight?

    (Also, are you aware you can't reply on Chrome? Maybe it's just my laptop but I'm having to use IE just to post!)
