    Good guide and very useful. Same method I used today.

    Quick warning though, BOOTSECT requires Administrator priviledges and will fail if you open the Command Prompt normally in Windows Vista (or Windows XP as a limited user). Users need to do the BOOTSECT portion of the guide using a Command Prompt opened by right clicking it in the Start Menu and choosing Run As Administrator. Otherwise it just says "Cannot trace a path to disk. Access Denied."

    This bit confused the hell out of me until I tried a command prompt with Administrator permissions and my problems were fixed.

    You can also jsut copy the files to a USB stick and run Setup while logged into Windows Vista if you want to cheat a bit. It copies enough files to C:\ to boot to Windows Setup to finish the job.
