    Vista bootloader + NTLOADER = reboot???

    When you ran the Vista disk you did the repair I am almost sure of it. I went through the same hoops awhile back and IIRC that aligned the system drives as far as partition numbering went. Well glad to hear you have everything up and running to your satisfaction. For future reference if you...

    Vista/XP System Restore Discussion

    Aha I see, thats one of the reasons they updated it, and if you have ever run Server 2003, the restore points and shadow copying are closer to Vista than XP, so I believe that may have been the test bed for the modified system used in Vista.

    A Peek at Vista HnS Beta

    Looks like a good start at least visually its very intuative. I take it that this piece of code is a bandaide for Microsoft not wanting to put any work into XP destroying all the restore points, all the shadow copies and all but one of the previous versions. It maybe that revamping XP's file...

    Computer Gaming

    I'm running at 1680x1050, with the settings all optimized to High, the possibilities are Low, Medium, High and Very High. I have not tried Very High yet. The game setup wizard uses high for my hardware. Very High is probably for GTX and Ultra models :-) . Fraps shows me averaging about 34 FPS...

    Vista won't boot correctly

    I know what my problem is but have no idea how to fix it. From Microsoft Technet I used Acronis True image to capture the image, but my problem is the same. When I go to deploy the image the computer sees the RAID array as drive D:. Therefore when the BCD is configured it sees the boot drive...

    Vista won't boot correctly

    Vista partion used to be assigned the C: drive when you booted into Vista. Now The XP partition is the C and Vista the D so none of the programs work. I'll see if I can get the debug info from Easy BCD posted in a minute. It boots into Vista but Vista is on the wrong partition in this case...
