Exclamation Crazy boot configuration with Vista

Hi everyone, got a weird problem here. Heres the situation:

On my master disk I have Windows XP Professional.
On my slave disk I have two partitions with Windows Vista Beta 2 installed on one and I have just installed Windows Server 2003 R2 on the second partition.

Before I installed Windows Server, the Vista OS selection came up with the options for Vista and XP. Since I have installed server the OS choice screen has changed to the basic one you see on pre Vista systems and only Windows XP and Windows Server are shown. I cannot access Vista to see if I can restore the boot file to show Vista in the selection on startup.

Please could you help, its urgent!

Brand new setup!

Intel Core 2 Quad Extreme Edition QX6800 (2.93GHz)

BFG GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3
Corsair 2GB DDR2 XMS2 Dominator RAM
