    My setup was wonderful with XP Pro and Vista Home Premium. After some
    problems with XP I stupidly just reinstalled XP and wiped out Vista's boot.
    XP is C: and Vista is M: If I reinstall Vista Home Premium it won't let me
    upgrade my nice setup. Anyway to just restore/rebuild the boot file(s) or use
    a third party program?
    Thank you

  2. Boot from the Vista DVD and it will have an option to repair
    the startup (boot) files.

    =================================
    I not sure if the following freebie will
    work in the situation you describe but
    it may be worth a try:

    VistaBootPRO

    you can install VisataBootPro on the XP side and repair the Vista boot.
