fedora/vista dual boot - partimage: restored vista - vista won't let me log on

I have an acer 5520 with vista home premium
no cd .. just hidden partition

i put on fedora 8
dual booted fine

booted from system rescue cd
played with gparted and partimage
took image of my current vista partition with partimage
restored image

vista would not boot
i had hidden partition then vista partition
i removed hidden partition so vista partition was first on hard drive
then vista booted

vista boots but when i log in i get a run32dll.exe error or something like that

i have tried many things
ntfsfix - windows hangs at loading os
chntpw - couldn't get windows to even boot
vista safemode - would hang at a driver load

i really wish i had a vista iso or something
i am dangerously close to losing vista
hidden partition is gone
i still have partition that has partimage's vista images
fedora loads fine

what do i do

please help!

how can i save vista (i have cdkey on laptop .. i just need vista cd)
I really hope i can get this image working cause it has all the drivers for laptop installed already
