    I was running XP and Vista on my system and I reinstalled XP. Now I can't access Vista at all. The bootloader menu screen doesn't load so it defaults to XP every time.
    I've tried using EasyBcd in XP but that doesn't work. Is there a way to manually edit the boot.ini file to add Vista to the startup options?

    Boot from the Vista CD and go to the Repair your computer. You may need to do it twice. It will find a problem and fix it. Then it will only load Vista. When in Vista use EasyBCD to add XP to the bootloader.
