    i downloaded bootcamp when i bought my machine and installed XP on it. i then deleted the xp partition in osx with bootcamp and restored it to a single volume, repartitioned, and installed vista. whenever vista boots, i get some funky errors in DOS talking about how the partition table is messed up. vista boots soon thereafter and runs fine, but i'm curious as to whether or not anyone else has had this problem or if it's something i can fix. i tried reinstalling vista and the exact same error occured. i can post pictures of the error when i boot into vista (now).




    oh yeah... and vista boots soooooooo slowwwwwwwwww. gah.

    I had the "unrecognizedzed partition table for drive 80" error also, but it can be easily fixed by downloading easybcd ( When you install it, use the program to recreate the master boot record.
