    Hello,


    I have installed FC+winxp+vista on friends computer.

    Boot up from Vista Installation DVD and select Repair Your Computer option (its below Install Icon). Select Windows Vista -- Command Prompt.
    Execute this at command prompt:
    Code:
    bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    bootrec.exe /fixboot
    Close Command Prompt window and restart.
    It will remove GRUB and Vista will boot up on reboot.

    Well thanks, bit I solved the problem alredy.

    I booted into a vista install dvd, and selected repair-startup repair. Than I went in Vista, installed Easy BCD and added xp to boot configuration file.

    Thanks anyway
