    On one of the PCs I installed 5536 on, the boot loader had a bug/syntax
    problem for the 'Windows Legacy OS Loader' identifier of {ntldr}. The device
    value was not set:

    Windows Legacy OS Loader
    ------------------------
    identifier {ntldr}
    device unknown
    path \ntldr
    description Earlier Version of Windows

    I'm clad fixing the device value with bcdedit and making device partition=c:
    allowed be to boot to XP.

    I have not yet sent in a report via the Vista bug reporting tool.
