I'm running Mac OS X on one hard drive, and Vista on a second. When I boot up on the Vista hard drive, I get this long string of text, about partitions or something. I need to know if it's possible to get rid of that message, or if something's wrong with my system, or anything would help. I recorded a video of it, which I've uploaded here:

firstly, get XP, vista sucks

Secondly, do you also run parallels when on OSX? I had a similar problem with XP where bootcamp for some reason was trying to boot from parallels, after choosing the windows HD (from pressing option), i pressed F12 or Delete (i forget) on the windows startup and made sure it booted from Boot Camp and was fine after that

I'm booting Vista 64 bit off of a second hard drive, no parallels involved. I use boot camp for the drivers.

I'd love to use XP, but I have to use Vista 64 in order to utilize the 6GB of RAM I'm using.
QUOTE Thanks
