problem with 5744

i just installed 5744 on my pc all was going great until i installed either one of these apps, Daemon tools 4 and the latest nero 7.5.7. after installed (both these programs were installed right before the reboot but not installed at the same time.), i cannot boot back in to vista. i get to the point on what OS to choose, once i choose vista i just get a black screen. I let it run for about 45 minutes and gave up. I am dual booting with XP i tried rebooting into safe mode for vista but it stops at the WDFGR file. i think that is the boot manager for vista? did this some how get corrupt from installing those two apps? how can i fix this?

There are known issues with Nero 6 and Vista - not sure if they have fixed it yet, something to do with the Windows DVD program on Vista.

In any case, try a clean install of Vista, I don't think this one's coming back.

Not very helpful, but I can't see the way out of this issue at this time.
Nero is Vista ready so it was probably Daemon that borked Vista.
Maybe ... never seen anything made by that company break an OS...

First time for everything I guess ;)
im going to just reinstall and see what happens.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
