    Well I am just down to one issue with Vista 64. I can not boot
    to any OS with out the Vista DVD in the drive. If I do not have it in it
    will look at my CD roms and then I get this error message:

    "Disk Boot Failure, Insert system disk and press enter"

    I have to put in the disk and just reboot to get the OS menu
    screen to
    choose Vista or XP64. I do have vistaboot Pro and what I have I
    have posted
    below. CAn anyone help me fix this issue. Right now I have all
    my hardware
    working I am realy liking Vista.

    Last week I installed Vista on the same HD as XP 64 and I had a
    bad system crash. I had Nvida drivers kill it and some how even screwed up
    my XP install. Both were taking 15+ min to boot up. they were on different
    partions so I have no idea what happend. Vista is a beta so I back up
    everything for just incase this happend.

    So this weekend I cleaned both HD. When I did my install I did
    XP 64 first and then Vista 64. XP 64 is on a IDE while Vista is on a SATA. I
    am not sure if I have a BIO setting issue or a MS problem. It has been
    driving me nuts.

    Can anyone please help me on this?

    Which disk drive is the BIOS set to boot from? Since it's failing, set
    the BIOS to boot from the other disk.

    Thanks that fixed it. I guess for Vista you must have IDE first in the
    prority. I had my SATA first before and that worked fine with XP64.

    Thanks for your help
