Every time i reboot my laptop it stops at the Windows Boot Manger. It gives me the option to choose Windows Vista or Memory Diagnostic Tool.  The laptop works great other than that.  I have to physically select Windows Vista every time. I have tried changing the options under Advanced system settings.
