I've had this problem before in the past, It should be an easy fix,

Assuming you have your windows disk,
Insert it and boot from it, Then when prompted, select your language and hit next, Select the "Repair your computer" link at the bottom left, Choose your windows vista partition and click next then choose "Startup Repair"

Your computer will then begin its repair process, Wait a bit for it to complete and restart.

Your computer should now boot up properly.
