If you installed Vista and it didn't correctly configure the dual boot, it needs to be added using the Add/remove tab of EasyBCD.

But first, please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management drive map, as well as the front-panel listings given by EasyBCD, so that we can advise you the exact steps and settings.

Use Snipping Tool in Start Menu to make screenshot, attach file using paper clip in Reply box.
