    Right gonna keep this short as i'm typing on my phone. I cannot boot to vista because of that fucking file tcpip.sys. Vista says it can't boot cos that file cos it can't verify the digital signature of it. I modified it to get the most out of it for internet because it has limitations. I cannot boot to any safe or debug mode and i cannot repair it or reinstall it due to lack of FREE space and there is no option to restore. I only have 4.8GB free though it shouldn't be a problem because it should be able to overwrite the current Windows files, but it can't.

    So first of all will someone on 64bit Vista please email the file tcpip.sys located at Windows/system32/drivers to davidk1234@gmail.com and second, if i manage to get the file onto i usb any idea how to replace it with command prompt? Thanks

    You'll need to do a repair. Do you have your Vista discs? :confused:

    im not sure what he did wrong, my half open connections is currently at 500 and my system is running just fine,

    you will prolly need to do a repair like thoughtdisorder said, if u would like i can send u my tcpip file tho its modified to allow 500 halfopen conns.

    Is there some sort of boot file manager i can download? Like put it on disc, boot to it and copy files to a DVD them delete those files to make space for vista? If so someone please point me in the right direction because i'm on my phone and its slow at loading pages and i'd rather not go through google looking.

    EDIT: I alreardy said i can't repair. i got a lend of an 80gb hard drive but when installing vista i can't fucking partition it and there's an XP install on it. And as usual i have no money to buy my own hard drive which is what i really need instead of getting other peoples drives.

    EDIT 2: Well, I'm back up and running. Turns out that the 80GB drive wasn't needed anymore as the person who was using it got their original hard-drive working again, so after I found that out I wiped it and installed Vista onto it. Now just in the process of deleting old files off the 160GB drive.
