The old familiar sting

Sign in to follow this  


After much experimentation and screwing around with the Vista and XP bootloaders, I'm now back under XP...

... and now Vista won't boot [lol]

My head seems to be alright this morning.

I was considering GRUB, but it's actually no longer a boot issue - the new BCD-based Windows bootloader is behaving correctly (at long, long last). The problem is that my install of Vista is borked, I think - it dies when it tries to load the kernel executable, but it says it's trying for a file that I don't have and which isn't even on the DVD. It happened the first time too and all I had to do to get around it was install a second time... but that's what screwed over the bootloader too, so I'm trying to avoid doing that [smile]
