"kinda urgent" and you bump it less than 2 minutes later!?

Go EasyBCD | Change Settings
Change the drive letter of Vista to the correct drive (if Vista is on C:, make sure it is set to C:, if it's on D:, make sure it is set to D:\) and press save settings.

Please don't PM me with support requests.
Please don't triple-post.

Your error is not the end of the world. Be patient.

Boot from your Vista DVD and use Advanced Options -> Startup Repair.

Insert the Vista DVD. When you get to the screen where the big Install Now button is that is the screen you want. In the lower left hand corner is the repair options. Click on that. When the options come up choose the Boot Repair. It is there.
