For some reason I thought you were using the Vista bootloader to boot VL. When installing to my wife's laptop, I was searching for your posts about it without luck. I guess I know why I couldn't find them :D

I use the XP bootloader to boot VL on my XP computers. The Vista boot loader is not user friendly and I haven't had time to really figure out EasyBCD (I think that's the name) so I can add VL to the boot menu.

When it comes to booting, I don't like to make changes I don't understand and I don't like to risk having anything mess up my ability to boot to all the OSes. Using the VL CD is totally safe and serves my needs at this time. So if it ain't broke, I don't fix it. Eventually I'd like to use EasyBCD after I've had time to study how it works.
