    XPee uses NTLDR to boot with or whatever.
    Vista uses BOOTMGR.
    Apparently when one installs Vista on a computer with slave hard drive
    installed, Vista will install this BOOTMGR where ever it feels like
    installing it.
    As a backup, clone the "C" drive and then try to get the backup to boot up.
    It won't and it comes up with the message "BOOTMGR is missing. Press
    Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart" but you can do this all day and nothing is going to
    change.
    The fix is simple but that's not the point. What is the benefit of BOOTMGR
    over the old NTLDR?
    Why was it changed?
