On a dual boot (XP and Vista) 2drive set up, where is the MBR? is it on the
xp drive or the vista drive? Using vista bootloader.

Re: MBR
Hi,

If the boot is freezing, then you first need to check the hardware. Test
memory, power supply, and hard drives with diagnostics. Look for blown or
leaking capacitors on the motherboard.
