I accidentally semi-bricked my compy by uninstalling an OS. Now the only way that I can make it useable again is those goddamn recovery CDs. What's funny about that is that the Windows Vista HP recovery CD wouldn't run at boot-up, like it's supposed to, while a Windows XP Gateway recovery CD ran fine. There's something wrong with that picture...

so you have a gateway OEM XP OS on your PC now? What's the problem? Did you want vista or something?

No, it had Vista. I installed Ubuntu Linux one time, and didn't want it anymore, so I deleted its partition. Well, my compy still tried to open the OS select screen at boot-up, but it was giving an error message and froze up. I tried the Vista restore disk provided by HP, but it didn't work for some reason.

Actually, the XP restore disk was for my stepmom's old laptop.
