thx for the quick reply,
i already have an OS installed on my PC, i'm aware that the OS is wiped, I deleted vender.xml already. When I connect my blackberry and initiate the loader and tell it to load the OS, it fails to connect to the blackberry to start the process... This is on Vista, on my laptop, whenever I try this, it causes the blackberry to reboot over and over.
as far as not being able to connect, i think its because i have a password on my blackberry
