Default Re: cant boot vista

This is due to you reverting back to the older NTLDR as opposed to vista's new BOOTLDR. When you reinstall XP is writes over the BOOTLDR which Vista places on each primary boot partition if I recall reading right. What you have to do is boot off the Vista CD and enter the recovery section. Then simply choose to fix the MBR and it will reloard the proper BOOTLDR and give you the choices you had before.
