    Hi, last night as i was bored, i thought it was time to play with FD-ISR and install XP into an empty snapshot.
    All appeared to go well until this morning when i could not boot into my Vista primary snapshot, or my clean vista installed snapshot.
    The error was that the winload.exe was either missing or corrupt, i could however still boot into XP snapshot so i thought a copy/update to my primary snapshot from the primary snapshot archive would solve the problem.

    However it did not and i ended up doing a repair from the Vista disc and everything would now appear to be okay.

    Has anyone else encountered a similar problem, and how did you go about solving it??
