Did you create new restore points in Vista to test to see if they get deleted? The old ones will not come back.

Yes, and they all go away when I reboot. Does having the system on the xp drive cause a problem, my laptop with vista ultimate has the system files on the same drive as the os? I just have to reboot, not even use xp and no restore in vista. XP is first boot then arrow down to start vista.

LennyP,

You can try with Vista installed first to have it as the system boot drive to see if that helps.

When you say installed first do you mean in the system startup boot order? Where you get which os to boot to first? Default OS? I tried it with the changed boot order, still cleaned out my restore point.

LennyP,

It would be when the Vista partition is listed as the System Boot disk in Disk Management, not just from the boot order.

LennyP,

I must admit that I'm stumped to why XP is still deleting your restore points in Vista. I would recommend that you post this question in the General Discussion forum and Vista General newsgroup to see if someone else may know of a solution for you. You should reference this tutorial in your post so that they will know what you have tried already. I hope you get a solution soon.

Sorry, :(

Shawn

Shawn,
Well I'm stumped too, if I knew how to move the system files I'd try that. One other thing I noticed is that when I move the paging file in Vista to the Vista drive when I reboot they are back in the D: drive. Won't stay put. Thank you for all your time and help.

Hi.. I just want to thank whoever is responsible for this wonderful fix or workaround...It is such a relief to know that I now actually have a shot at getting back in Vista after there is a problem... I guess you can tell I've had a few disasters..:D Getting Vista working with XP in the dual boot has been a nightmare...finally, when I figured it all out...there were no restore points....Thanks again...Jo

You're welcome Jo Ward, and welcome to Vista x64 Forums. I just got it from the KB article at the top of the tutorial, but made it more user friendly to understand easier. I'm glad to hear that it has helped you.

I had a few disasters myself, all of my own doing of course. LOL ;)

HI: A Newbie here. My system has Vista on C: and XP on D: My Intel sata drivers are loaded from directory C:\Drivers\ Will I create a mess if I hide partition C: from XP? How will the drivers load, or is that a dumb question from a Newbie?

Hi Bob,

LOL, no such thing as a dumb question remember. ;)

Usually these are loaded before the OS, so it should be ok.

Thanks Shawn. Everything seems to work now. Did get a serious hangup though while doing a file search. Didn't record the error code:-(
Note that the vista partition (drive C:) is still viewable in Windows Explorer. Don't understand that part since C: should not be mounted now.

Hi Rockfarmer,

That is interesting. The next time you get the error code, post it so we can take a look at it.

Glad to hear that XP is not deleting you Vista restore points anymore.

Hullo!
Just wondering if anyone can offer some words of wisdom...?:geek:

I'm in need of a Vista restore point, but thanks to our MS dual-boot problem..I don't have one! lol :S

Background: Each time Vista tries to boot I get the message "updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes" which ends in a restart.
No 'safe mode' etc options bypass this, nor does inserting my Vista dvd, (as the OS can't be repaired out of Windows!)

*I seriously want to avoid backing up (200GB+) of files onto dvds & starting again!:confused:

>>If I manage to use your fix for XP deleting restores, will it help me get Vista back up running?

>>I can still access my Vista drive (E:\ on my setup) through XP, so is it possible to remove the last couple of MS updates this way?

**Thanks, & sorry if it's verging on the wrong thread.

Hi Matt,

Are you able to boot into Vista at all?

If so, check in Windows Updates and look at your View update history to see what update has failed. Right click on that update and click View details, then click on the top link to go to a MS website to download the standalone installer for the update. Run the stadalone installer to see if that will install the update now and get rid of this error for you.

Hope this helps you,
Shawn

Hi, thanks for the reply.

No Vista won't boot even in safe mode :(.

Is there anyway of removing the Vista update from my E:\ whilst in XP?

Matt,

Not that I know of.

Are you not able to boot to a DVD at all? If so, you may be able to fix the problem with running a Startup repair.

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/91467-startup-repair.html

If not, then I must admit that I'm stumped. You might post this question in one the forums and newsgroups to see if someone may know of a way, if possible, to remove the updates from with XP.

Thanks Brink.

I can use my Vista DVD, entering the country I live in etc. But the repair option fails straight away saying contact the admin/Manufacturer.

It also says a re-install of Vista can only be done from WITHIN windows!! :(

Cheers for the replies, I'll post it elsewhere on Vistax64.
