Hi Tomika, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies :smile:

What error message do you get when you pick the OS X entry that EasyBCD created in your bootloader?

Press a key during the 3 seconds.. You should get a boot menu.

Thanks for the feedback, Tom... I had read somewhere about the F8 thing, but couldn't for the life of me locate that info :smile:

Boot from your Vista DVD and use the advanced options | repair options to access a command prompt and type this in
Code:
bootrec.exe /fixmbr
bootsect.exe /nt60 all
That should do the trick :smile:
