    Alright people...I had this problem like everyone else...and figured out what
    it was, and when i changed it....Vista didnt display that stupid Winload.exe
    corrupt error again.
    I have 4-5 drives in my computer, I have XP installed on my main drive and
    Vista on a secondary drive.
    Now what you need to do is in your bios...make sure you have BOTH hard
    drives (that you installed on) autodetecting when the computer starts up,
    otherwise it will come up with the error about winload.exe being corrupt, etc.
    Please let me know if this works, as this worked for myself...I only had the
    MAIN xp drive listed previously..and when I had the other one listed in the
    bios, it then started working perfectly.

    I was tearing out what little hair I have until I ran across this solution.
    It worked like a charm!
