I am currently running Vista Premium upgraded from XP.

I recently came across a NTLDR error on boot.  I can only load Windows from my Vista disk.

Can anyone explain how I can repair this.

Many Thanks

Run a repair on the OS. You might have to reinstall some application but it will fix your problem.
