    I am trying to do a dual boot with 2 separate hard drives.

    I installed XP on Drive C, updated everything, and all worked great.

    Then I tried to install Vista on Drive D...went smothly until it had to reboot to "finish" the Vista installation. It first came up an error screen.......(boot manager).....

    It stated: Windows failed to start, and that I should put my Vista OS disc back in and choose "Repair Windows. It also gave the reason for the error: Application Missing or Corrupt.... Windows\system32\winload.exe..... Status 0xc000000e

    Then if you hit continue, it takes you to the boot screen where you can choose XP or Vista
    Again XP will load.....but if you try Vista either repair or complete reinstall, you always come back to the same error.

    One more thing.....I cannot access my BIOS anymore, no matter what I do it will always go to the Boot Manager error screen.
