This is what precedes that screen:

Ok - that was exciting.

First things first....when I was in Vista making my last post, this is the view of disk management from in Vista (snip)

The hammering F8 thing didnt go quite as I had expected:
I went into that process having not seen your 2nd post Greg....this is what happened

Hit F8 a lot and then got what looked like a bios screen (which i have never seen before) asking which drive to boot from. Gave me 3 options: DVD, or 2 HDD's (it was using the bios names for the HDD's, NOT the labels of drives or partitions). Last option was boot from default - so i chose that.

I then carried on hitting F8 becasue I hadnt seen anything like what you described. Then i think there was a screen asking about repair...maybee not....cant recall now...but then it started loading Vista....timer bar....and then swapped suddenly to the W7 loading screen. then i got asked to log on from a network. ? There was a dropdown and it gave me the option to log on as IcarusII (which is the new admin i created in 7) so i did. Only then did I get to see the screen you described with Startup Repair at the top. Once I saw that I just hit shut down.

And then booted back into vista to grab the system disk management drives snip i took.

Im not sure why I had to do all that tho. Is that becasue of the question I asked regarding the EasyBCD default being E:? (which is my vista drive)
