Dual-Boot Issue; XP Pro ---> Vista
I'm currently running XP Pro on a laptop and I got a copy of Vista Business
from my school. What I did to install it was create an extended partition on
my hard drive and create a new V: partition. When I booted to the Vista dvd
and installed it, things went fine until it tries to restart and boot up
Vista. Right after choosing Vista from the boot list I get a screen that
says:

File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Status: 0xc0000001
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is
missing or corrupt.

I've tried repairing and reinstalling several times while tweaking this or
that with no success. One thing that I've noticed that seems strange is that
when I boot from the dvd and access the repair console, the drive letters in
the bcd differ from what they are in EasyBCD. Here is what EasyBCD reads:

Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier {bootmgr}
device partition=C:
description Windows Boot Manager
locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {default}
displayorder {ntldr}
{default}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout 3

Windows Legacy OS Loader
------------------------
identifier {ntldr}
device partition=C:
path \ntldr
description Windows XP Professional

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {default}
device partition=V:
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Microsoft Windows Vista
locale en-US
inherit {bootloadersettings}
osdevice partition=V:
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {0309b979-0a8e-11dc-92eb-87a75f4a0752}
nx OptIn
detecthal Yes

Any help or suggestions would be great.

========================
I don't know exactly what is causing the
issue you describe but I do know that
Vista installs best if you allow it to create
it's own partition.

Maybe some of the following info will
be useful:

You may need to reduce the size of
your Primary Active partition to create
some unallocated space.

I used Acronis Disk Director Suite 10
to accomplish this but there are other
options such as the app. mentioned
in the following article.

How to dual-boot Vista with XP -
step-by-step guide with screenshots
http://tinyurl.com/ysh8hy

Gnome Partition Editor
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

Once you have the unallocated space
available...you may need to enter your
BIOS and change the boot order so
you can boot from the Vista disk. From
that point just follow the onscreen
instructions.

The following links may be useful also:

Re: Dual-Boot Issue; XP Pro ---> Vista
Ok, I tried what you said. I deleted the partition that I had installed
Vista on and then booted to the Vista dvd and did the install to the
unallocated space. I got the same error again on restart. I've read before
the first guide that you posted and I feel like I've done exactly what it
says to do.

One strange thing I've noticed is during install it acts like it already has
all of the install files ready. It goes to the "expanding files" stage after
only a few seconds.

Sorry...I thought it was worth a try.

Makes a huge difference how the new partition was created and
(especially) formatted. If this was done from inside XP then that may
be the source of your problems. The surest way is to let the Vista
installer do both chores.

Hmmm, I didn't know that?

I installed XP onto a clean harddrive. After it finished, I used the
disk management tool to partition the remainder of the drive and
formatted each partition as NTFS.

Next, I installed Vista Ultimate 64 on one of the partitions and had no
problems at all with the installation, Vista and XP dual boot with no
problems. I'm wondering what problems have others had, was I just
lucky?

Bcd log indicated that your vista partition is V:, to launch vista, you
could try these command in WinRE mode, type following command.
bcdedit /set {default} device partition=V:
bcdedit /set {default} path \Windows\system32\winload.exe

I've tried lots of different ways of formatting the partition. I've
formatted it through XP and through Vista. I've also tried installing to
unallocated space. I'm not aware of any other way of doing it.

By WinRE do you mean the recovery environment available when Vista is booted
from the dvd?
