    Think I'm fucked either way, but..


    Had Vista Ultimate installed on drive. SMART failed (too may re-allocatments). Threw in a spare drive, installed XP on it, used a data recovery tool I have access to to copy the data over to another drive (same size, partition, make/model, etc).

    Try to boot up the drive w/ Vista ultimate, get 'Missing NTLDR' error (which i expected). Threw in the Vista Ultimate disc to repair the boot loader, it fixes the boot partition, however still get the 'ntldr missing' error.

    Now when I try to use the Vista repair tool, it says 'only can repair Vista Ultimate, please insert proper disc to repair this version of windows'. Should I just bite the bullet on this? Or would a Ghosting application work (IE ghost the bad drive's image over to the new drive).
