    When I boot vista on my black 250 2.4gh mac, a black screen with bunch of stuff starts. The loading process is as follows:

    Booting GRLDR....
    Reseting the boot drive...Success.
    Turning on gate A20...Success.
    (and a whole bunch of other stuff)

    Next loading screen
    Booting 'Windows Vista'
    Vista Loader 2.1.2
    fallback 1
    find--set root/bootmgr

    Warning: Unrecognized partition table for drive 80. Please rebuild it using microsoff-compatible FDISK tool (err=4)
    (and some more stuff)

    then it starts the windows login process. Vista works fine, just wondering why it loads up vista that way. Can anyone explain? Thanks.

    That is normal behavior for Vista in my experience.

    The boot messages you describe are part of a program called Vista Loader

    This is a program used to activate and run pirate copies of Windows Vista
