I have a AMD Atherlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2613 Mhz with 2 250 gig of HDD IDE on raid 0, 2 SATA 1.5 TB Vista business 64 came with the machine .
I tried to install on one of the 1.5 Win7 Ultimate 64 on one of all worked fine for 2 weeks with only to boot any of the system with the original DVD from vista ore win7. But now the SATA HDD broke i had do used the backup from setup on new drive but i can't get my systems to work right .Thinks like most of my installed programs on vista ask me to register programs from my avast virus protection to some programs start to run the installer from boot .
My question is what ore how is the best way to run both systems on one machine but not to harm each systems 1 on raid one on the SATA with some kind of boot loader
Thank you

Is it an option to install windows 7 and then use something like vmware server to run vista on top of your original operating system? Or do your really need to be able to boot into vista also?

vista should have been fresh install to VM   this would have been best
1 your wanting to run Areo features desktop in VM  not sure but this is possible probably why it is not working
2 avast won't reg and part of program missing?   bad Image
3 multiple displays from with in VM  again dont think this is possible
4 these should be done from main system not VM
5 printer should work fine   this is done through intergration features under setting of VM
6 how much time are you giving it after boot up?  the VM must get an IP address from your router and this may be the issue there

I think your bigest problem has stemed from not doing a clean install of vista on the VM
well besides using Vista  :-)  sorry had to say it!  :-)

make another VM and do a clean install of vista then install and run your programs to test it
