I was successful in almost every aspect of getting XP and Vista on our new laptop. I used EasyBCD to set the boot timeouts and the other options, and it was very easy. I installed it on the Vista side and it worked like a champ. The XP side, however, (which I will use when we transition to Vista) is not so happy. I checked the other posts (research first!) and it said to install .NET 2.0, which according to the Add/Remove Programs, it is installed. The laptop has been rebooted after the install, and EasyBCD was installed again after the reboot, but I am still getting the error message. Any other suggestions?
