Need help editing Vista boot loader.

  1. Im using 2 hard drives. One has XP Pro and the other has 2 partitions with Vista and Win 2000. I installed Vista last and now 2000 isnt showing up in the boot loader. Ive never edited a Vista boot file before. Ive used a couple of third party programs-Vista Boot and Easy BCD but they havent worked. Is there a way to make an entry in the boot file like with XP and 2000? Thanks

    Not like 2k and XP. Because it uses a completely different bootloader. You can do it manually, but I think its fairly ugly, which is why there are 3rd party apps. What is the issue with EasyBCD?

    Both programs add a Win 2000 entry but when I choose it , it boots to the XP partition.
