    you have three NTFS partitions. what is in first partition?
    add this code
    Code:
    title Vista 1
             rootnoverify (hd0,0)
             chainloader +1
    
    title Vista 2
              rootnoverify (hd0,1)
              chainloader +1
    check which title boot up Vista and remove other.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I'm glad to see I'm not the only one still up tonight!

    I found a web page (before reading your post) and tried changing it to

    title Windows Vista
    rootnoverify (hd0,1)
    chainloader +1
    makeactive


    From what I gathered from the other thread, 'makeactive' is supposed to make the Vista partition the default (which is what I want). That didn't work.
    BUT, Vista DID boot on the selection.

    The thread also used "unhide (hd0,1)" instead of 'rootnoverify'.

    Not sure what the difference is.
    But, I FINALLY have both partitions working.

    Now I'll never get to sleep...........

    It has been one helluva Fedora.
