    Missing Boot - Whoops! Help!


    Ok, I had Vista RC1 isntalled on my secondary hard drive, with XP on my C
    drive. Dual booting. I decided to go with RC1 as my main OS, so I swapped the
    drives, to make Vista on C and XP on D, and when I formatted the old C drive,
    i totally forgot like an idiot that the MBR was on that drive, so now i have
    a Missing boot device...

    any Vista tools out there that will let me put boot files on the Vista drive
    without having to reformat and reinstall?
