Can anyone help me.

Setting up a new system as below:

Intel core 2 Duo E 8500 CPU GA EP45UD3R Motherboard 2 G DDR II RAM
2x 750Gb Power SATA II HDD
1 G Geforce GTX 285 PCI Express

Software:
Window Vista Home Premium

Vista sits on one hard drive Sdb1
2nd Hard Drive has the following partitions;
Sda1 FAT 32 100Gb for shared files with Linux and Windows
Sda2 Linux Ubuntu


I added this to the Grub menu.lst file:

title Microsoft Windows Vista
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
root (hd1,0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1

When I select Vista off this list I get the message

"BOOTMGR is missing"

Can you help me with this one?

Try changing this

title Microsoft Windows Vista
map (hd1) (hd0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
root (hd1,0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1

to this

title Microsoft Windows Vista
rootnoverify (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1

Also check your hdd boot order in bios.
