Hi, I have the exact same problem; Dell Vostro 1520, VISTA Business. However, everytime I do F8 and pick Repair my Computer, I get stuck at the Other Username/password challenge, and nothing gets past it (I never get to select a language).
How do I restore the 1520 to factory. By the way, I also have a second 1520 and it works (bought two at the same time); any way I can use the functioning 1520 to help me restore the non-functioning 1520
I would recommend manual clean installation. See Windows Reinstallation Guide/A Clean Install of Windows Vista:
You may alternatively upgrade your Windows to a later version, if so see Windows Reinstallation Guide/A Clean Install of Windows 7/8.1.
