    I tried to do a Windows Vista upgrade on my computer that had Windows XP Pro
    and XP Pro 64 dualboot with the upgrade being installed on Windows XP Pro.
    The upgrade didn't work and the original XP Pro couldn't be restored so I
    just booted off the Vista DVD and installed that way however now I no longer
    have multiboot with Windows XP Pro 64bit. Is there a way to retreive this or
    do I have to start all Over with a reinstall of XP Pro 64?

    Re-installing XP Pro 64 won't change anything. You don't say much about
    your install and if you had the X64 drive attached when you installed Vista
    you should have had a dual boot. Use VistaBootPro (if RC1 or later) and add
    a legacy system to your boot. If x64 doesn't boot from the entry, copy your
    ntldr ntdetect.com and boot.ini files onto your system drive ( the one with
    the Vista boot on it) and adjust the entry in the boot.ini accordingly to
    point to the X64 hdd/partition.

    I was able to solve a similar problem using Vista Boot Pro.
