    Normally the Vista installer does this for you automatically. If I
    recall correctly the repair facility on the Vista install DVD has
    the ability to do exactly the same thing after installation.

    If you look around the menus on the DVD you should be able to find
    it.

  3. Just use EasyBCD http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 .

    If you will have any problem with booting XP then copy ntldr,
    ntdetect.com, Boot.ini files onto Vista partition and select this
    partition in EasyBCD as XP boot partition. It will work, I tested it.

    to the OP:
    VistaBootPro has options to fix/repair the various boot menus.
