I, uh, couldn't figure out where this should go so I'm just gonna put it here.
I dual boot vista ultimate and win7 (build 7000) on my laptop (both x32) and the vista installation ksod'd me. I had to wipe the vista partition and reinstall vista. apparently the mbr was on the vista partition and was wiped out also. now with the new vista installation there was a new mbr and win7 is not registered in it. i don't get the choice to boot into win7 when i start up my computer.
can anyone point out a way to solve this problem for a computer n00b? (that is, a way short of wiping win7 and reinstalling it too)
