Last night was just freaky. I went to re-activate my copy of vista since it deactivated due to hardware changes, and I found that it was already reactivated. Ok, weird, but cool. Next, I did updates. Did the usual song and dance of update, reboot, configure, reboot, configure, login. Cool. I decided to remove iTunes from vista because I want to put it onto another machine. So I uninstalled it, then did the recommended reboot. Upon hitting the boot select menu (for vista or xp x64) and upon choosing vista, it tells me that winload.exe is missing. I hate vista, and have no remorse about getting rid of it, but can I restore a backup copy of winload.exe from somewhere? Where in Vista would that somewhere be? Its a non-SP Vista Business edition.
