    2nd Drive  e: and F:


    Vista is on C: and 7 is on E:

    Iwas using Win 7 last,Sutdown and resarted to boot into Vista.
    I got this error:File/windows/system/32/winload.exe.
    Status: Qxc000000F

    The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

    I tirerd repair with Vista CD and 7 DVD,both no good.

    I tried going back to last restiore point no good.
    Windows 7 is fine.

    I know there is a way with a Cmd. or getting in Boot file and repair.

  • Editing the boot menu with EasyBCD by NeoSmart Technologies should solve your problem, it provides a graphical front end to the BCDEdit Command line that makes it easy for you to define start-up settings and edit boot entries on the new Windows manager.
