Re: Dual boot
Hi joebak
problem is that the latest OS, in this case vista, MUST be installed LAST. If installed last, it will correctly pick up the older OS and include it in the boot menu. The older OS does not pick up the vista bootload details and only boots itself.

It's should help. I think Ive also seen articles on microsoft website covering the same topic.
