I have a few questions about the HDD Configuration.
First off, I'm guessing you're using SATA drives? Please correct me if that's not the case.
Secondly, who's the manufacturer of the Mother Board?
Here's what I think might be going on.
B/C XP "Likes" to be on the First HDD before other OS's it may have an issue identifying itself to Vista, which is on the First HDD.
Make certain that you have the Correct Drivers for your SATA Controller, and install the XP compatable driver with XP and the Vista Compatable driver with, get this, Vista.
Also, Install XP on the First HDD and Vista on the Second. The Vista Bootloader should be able to
hypothesize what to do with XP.
I'm making assumptions here b/c this appears to be the most common dual boot mistake with Vista.
If your situation is different somehow, please correct me.
