    I just updated my MBP to 10.5.7 from 10.5.4, and now whenever I try to start up my Vista 32 bit home premium partition, it blue screens and restarts the laptop. Has anyone else had this problem, and is there a known fix for it? I have updated to the latest version of Boot Camp.

    Updating OS X should have nothing at all to do with your Vista install on a Boot Camp Partition.

    IMO the timing is coincidental. Boot from your Vista install CD and try to troubleshoot the Windows install from there.

    Indeed, the two partitions have nothing in common. One wouldn't effect the other. It's an (unfortunate) coincidence.

    If it consistently BSODs when starting up, you could always back up any important files and reinstall Vista. Just be sure to erase the Windows partition with Boot Camp. Being thorough is usually best.
