stovepipe is on a distinguished road


Vista only recognises C:\Windows, whether it is first volume of first hard disk, or first volume of third hard disk.

If I try to boot up on the drive that XP Pro is on I just get a system error during bootup. Does anyone know what I should do? I thought about using the XP Pro disk to do a repair installation but wouldn't that end up just switching around the drive letters again and ****ing up my vista? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
