    I initially started with XP and created a separate partition for Vista. After installing Vista on the other partition, Vista sees the (XP) Earlier version of windows. When I choose XP, I get the following error: NTOSKRNL.EXE is missing or corrupt.

    If I repair the XP with fixmbr - I end up screwing up Vista. Then when I repair Vista, it end's screwing up XP.

    How do I fix this?

    Certainly don't use fixmbr. Did you try a Startup Repair from Vista's DVD?

    These will help with editing Vista's boot store:

    VistabootPro or EasyBCD
