My MBP didn't boot one day so i took it in for a repair. They said my logic board needs to be replaced. When i got it back i was able to boot it up in Mac OS X and was satisfied at the moment. When i got home, i realized that i was not able to boot it up in Windows Vista.

I get the following screen when i try to boot it up in windows.

Unfortunately, Windows is very sensitive to any changes in hardware. XP and Vista both will usually refuse to boot when major hardware changes have been made. The reason has to do with hardware enumeration.

Try doing a repair to Vista. See this article.
