I don't know if altering boot.ini will fix the problem. If it does, that's great.

But normally you need to install an older operating system before a newer one. In your case it would mean installing XP Pro first, and then Vista.

There are sometimes ways to install an older OS when a newer one is already installed, but you would have to find a special procedure to accomplish that.

Vista is different in that it uses BCD


shihabpfase your question is too vague. Do you want to just boot vista automatically or do you want to remove the xp boot and replace it with the vista one on c:?
Is f: a drive or a partition on the same drive xp is on?
