    So, for some reason, I have a boot 0 error everytime I start up my laptop when I dual-booted Mac OS X. I need to fix it. I have no DVD's with me or my Vista disc. Can I make use of my Flash memory so I can fix my laptop?

    do you have any installation dvds? (ubuntu vista osx ect?)
    if not, you probably have to wait

    boot0 error means your osx partition isnt active

    k, boot that cd, and when oyu get to the darwin boot menu, press f8 on your keyboard so oyu can type in more options

    type in "-s" (without quotes) and press enter
    it should start loading, and you can see the text on the screen

    after a while, it will ocme to a shell like thing, where you can type stuff
    assuming that you installed osx to your first harddrive, type in (qwithout quotes)
    "fdisk -e /dev/rdisk0"
    it should comeup with a list of partitions, and their filesystem next to it
    look at the number for the one that says hfs+ (or something like that), then type f (insertnumberhere)
    after that, write "w" without the quotes
    then "q" without quotes
    try rebooting now
