Hi Rod,
welcome to the boards.
Are you booting from your Vista DVD ? You must have it in the tray when you boot the system and "hit any key" when it asks, or else the boot will just go to the HDD.

If you have done so and the boot is not fixed - do it again.

My Dual boot (using exactly the same URL for instructions) required 2 tries. (It does warn that you might need to do the repair more than once)

EasyBCD will only work under XP if you've got NET 2.0 framework installed. (It's an option in Windows update)
Vista has it by default so EasyBCD will work there straight away if you've fixed the Vista boot.
