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?

thanks,

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 7.5.7.0 is Vista ready so it was probably Daemon that borked Vista.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
