Hi
Can you still Boot into XP asswell??

hell, that is the hard way.

go start-control panel
go to classic view
go system, advanced tab.

click the startup and recovery-settings button.
click the edit button.

one of the bottom two lines will say vista, somewhere. delete the line you want to get rid of. ONLY DELETE THIS LINE!!!! or your whole system will crash. but it is safe to delete this line.

save and exit.

Voila!

ok nvm thanks guys i got it fixed. Just needed to do a fixboot
