    PLEASE HELP!...'bout to go insane.

    Hey MAkaveli.. I figured out how to fix this , see what You think? I disabled all the drives in the BIOS other than the one that VISTA is on, now when I boot up it says BOOTMGR is missing. If I put BOOTMGR on that drive (it's on SATA 2), I should be able to boot up . Also I disabled the 8800...
