Okay, first I tried upgrading XP Pro on my SATA hard drive. BSOD on last\nreboot. Tried "repair" and got two choices (one Vista one Vista "repaired"),\nboth of which BSOD'd. Restored XP from image, booted to the DVD and\ninstalled to the IDE drive (no Windows of any version, just a backup drive).\nOn last reboot, Vista loads, upgrades work, activation works, all is well.\nTake out the DVD and reboot and straight to XP.\n\nHmmmm.... Put the dvd back in, reboot and DON'T "press any key to boot to\ncd/dvd". Get the Vista & Vista "repaired" choices, where Vista works fine &\n"repaired" BSOD's.\n\nNo big deal-\-I can just put the DVD in when I want to boot into Vista, but\ndoes anyone have any idea what's causing this and what I can do to fix it?\nIn either system, looking in My Computer properties/Advanced/Startup &\nRecovery options only shows that version as a choice for default. I could\nmanually edit the XP boot ini file if I remembered the context for the file,\nI guess.
