    I have Vista Ultimate 64 EN; just installed SP1; want to install EasyBCD, but during install procedure, the text in the buttons is blue/invisible (same color as back ground); so cannot see what choices to make during installation.

    Hi benkhof, welcome to the boards,
    I've never seen your problem, do you have a custom desktop theme that's clashing ?
    If so you could temporarily revert to windows standard till EasyBCD is installed, or perhaps try selecting the whole window to see if the text becomes visible when selected.

    I'm experiencing the same behavior myself actually since upgrading to SP1.

    :-(

    I did check wall paper; negative
    I used both Classic Windows view as new view; all negative
    I did run installation as adminstrator; negative
    Did check "Turn Windows feature on or off"" Microsoft .Net framework 3.0; all options on
    Cannot install Net Framework 2.0+, as 3.0 is part of base Vista.

    Did not check what changed with upgrade to SP1, but expect error here.
    Same error when using e.g. EasyBCD 1.7

    Background: did not use EasyBCD before; used GRUB before; but patch KB935509, prereq for Vista Ultimate SP1, does not like GRUB.

    Sorry Guru, looks like SP1 is really screwing with you. Did you upset someone at MS ?
