    I keep seeing DOS before VISTA starts to load
    I have a MBP when i load vista i see these lines:

    Booting GLDR...
    Resetting the bootdrive

    and so on... the next screen goes

    booting 'Windows Vista'

    .... how can i remove this?

    My mom has another MBP and she has windows Xp in it. i never see the dos thing.

    Thanks and More Power

    It's just Vista's startup process, it certainly isn't DOS. Have you ever seen a Linux startup?

    Just ignore it.

    well the problem is i cant ignore it... instead of going right through the normal booting process of vista, it take a minute or 2 to before it loads. hope someone knows how to resolve this. just like the second link

    If it's that much of a problem you might do better asking on a Vista forum, as in that case it's a Vista issue.
