when you install leo your boot record well be messed. Use the ubuntu live cd and get into the terminal
type as follows in the terminal
fdisk /dev/sda (sda if its a laptop hda if its a desktop)
p (this command will show your partitions, the one with the asterisk is what is booting)
//* look at which ones have an asterisk and "de-asterisk" them. pay attention to whichever one is your vista partition
a (this command well set a boot flag (an asterisk) or "de-asterisk"
You will then get an option to pick a partition (1-4) chose the number that has the vista partition and hit enter
p (just to check to make sure the vista partition is the only one with an asterisk
w (this command writes the new partition table)
exit (exits you out of root)
exit ubuntu. restart your comp
your vista will boot, but now there is a winload.exe error. Boot the vista dvd and repair your comp. This error may not be there. If you dont have a vista dvd, not sure how to fix this error. You may be able to fix the errors in the live cd. Boot the Live cd and run these commands in the terminal after sudo -s. Either that or pick a torrent for the vista dvd tis the way i know. @ yanike chime in if you have another way
get to the command line, and type as such
bootrec.exe /fixBoot ( it may be capital F for both of these fixes I cant remember)
