Why do people do this?? they set up a dual boot and have no idea on how to
manage it nor how to undo it.
Chances are you're here because you're running Windows Vista and want to do
one of two things. Install a second OS or manage your boot configuration
without directly editing the BCDEdit file. As you likely now realize,
Windows Vista has made this task somewhat complicated for most users.
VistaBootPRO was developed to make changes to the Windows Vista Boot
Configuration Data (BCD) registry quickly and easily, doing the job in a
fraction of the time it would take using the alternative. The only other way
to edit the BCD is to use the command prompt application "bcdedit.exe,"
located in the Windows\system32 folder of Windows Vista, which requires
users to become familiar with the ins and outs of the bcdedit.exe switches
and options, leaving many frustrated users in its path. VistaBootPRO allows
users to easily and neatly organize their boot configuration entries from
within all flavors of Windows.
info on bcdedit......
on the other hand inserting the Vista DVD and doing a startup repair might
also fix the problem
