Windows Vista won't boot after XP install FIX

I know there are several ways to get Vista Beta 1 to boot after XP install.

This is my solution:
I simply replaced the ntldr and NTDETECT.COM that XP wrote to my C drive by the Vista ones. I was lucky that I used Vista for some hours before so it created the C:\build\filerepository folder. This folder contained the Vista files ;) You can easily find them using Windows Search (F3).

Reboot, select "Windows Longhorn" from XP Boot Manager press ENTER and enjoy this great new OS.
