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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
