    All the NT OS's changed the MBR, if you dual booted any of them you
    always started installing with the oldest first NT, 2000, XP (cause
    they wouldn't install otherwise (normal boot.ini)) - vista most likely
    does the same thing.

    Your second drive has a vista MBR and you may need to have XP screw
    with it. You can do this by entering the repair console and using the
    XP command FIXMBR. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058
    To make it an XP MBR.
