Vista Enterprise troubles

Edit: You can run “chkdsk /f” instead of “chkdsk /r” – it’s much faster. Post updated.
Twice now my laptop has refused to boot into Vista. I just get a blinking cursor right after the BIOS prompt. I’ve managed to fix it by booting up the install disc into recovery mode, launching the command-line, and running the following commands:
- chkdsk /f
- bootrec /fixboot
- bootrec /fixmbr
You don’t need to enter the BitLocker keys, since these commands run on the unencrypted boot drive.
This fixed it both times, but the problem, obviously, returned.
