Paritition 2 (The partition with vista) is primary. Partition 3 (with goddammed XP) is extended.

Still, when I boot up, it only gives XP.

Does the Vista drive have a drive letter?
Can you access the Vista drive through my computer?
You could just format your whole hardrive after you back up everything
Or you could format the partition that XP is installed onto...
