    I have the exact same problem... no one answered me last time. Perhaps I'll get a fix for this now.

    I'm having this same problem as well. Vista still starts up, but it takes long as a result of this.

    Windows Vista Service pack 1 fixes this problem I believe.

    Apparently not because I'm running it.

    Does it work?

    Hi i have downloaded EasyBCD, my question is, when i reinstall the Vista Bootloader, will it stop Boot Camp from working as its rewriting the MBR?

    Anyone that has tried this, does Boot Camp still run after pressing "Reinstall Vista Bootloader"

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I decided to test it and worked perfectly. I have been told it will only negatively impact Vista that uses a BIOS crack.
