I installed the public beta of Vista (5728) on one harddrive and later installed Win2k on another. Ever since I installed win2k i haven't been able to boot into vista. Vista isn't listed as a boot option on the boot menu and I've read its because vista doesn't use the nt loader but instead boot manager or something. Even if I disconnect the win2k drive and make the vista drive primary in the boot sequence I still get the following error:
Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corupt: <windows 2000 root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.
Please re-install a copy of the above file.
Why is the boot sector thinking this is 2k still?
