Unable to access primary drive after using BCDEdit
I have a computer with two drives each containing a different
operating system (C: Vista Home Premium and G: Vista Ultimate). After
modifying the boot order etc, I am now unable to boot (C: Vista Home
Premium) and it no longer appears on the boot menu.

Note: I haven't been able to get the recovery console to run.

Can someone please help me repair this with BCDEdit?

Here is the output of BCDEdit:

I have the same problem and i'm hoping someone can help answer this
question in 2009.

I have SP2 set up on my machine runing Vista Home Premium x86 & x64. I
modified the names, the defualt os (to x86) and the display order to
x86/x64. Now i can't see x64 in the Boot menu. Here's a before and after
of the bcdedit cmd. and do note the bcdedit was not done under the
"defualt" OS.
