Boot Vista/XP/Server2003 Please help

#1
I bought a computer with Vista, added 2 partitions - 1 for XP, 1 for Server 2003. I am totally frustrated with trying to get the triple boot to work. I downloaded EasyBCD and added entries and this is from the Overview Page.

There are a total of 3 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader TimeOut: 20 seconds.
Default OS: Windows XP

Entry #1

Name: Windows Vista
BCD ID: {f9f0f35d-c8df-11db-acab-0016cfd17106}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #2

Name: Windows XP
BCD ID: {default}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \ntldr
Windows Directory:

Entry #3

Name: Windows Server 2003
BCD ID: {f9f0f35f-c8df-11db-acab-0016cfd17106}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \ntldr
Windows Directory:

I've also edited the boot.ini and this is how it looks:

[boot loader]
timeout=20
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\Windows
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\Windows="Windows Vista" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(5)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINDOWS="Windows XP" /fastdetect

When I reboot, it goes into the EasyBCD boot menu, then immediately follows with the Boot.ini menu. I am totally illiterate when it comes to this. I've played and played with it. Please explain the process to me as simply as possible.

I know I'm just missing a step but have no idea what that is.

Thank you very much!!

Hi rech340, welcome to NST.

What's not working here: Vista or XP?
