    Did you change the bios at all ever from AHCI mode to IDE or vice-versa, since the last time Vista worked?

    Anyhow, if not, then you'll probably have luck by adding Vista to the boot menu and then booting to safe mode for it. After you choose Vista while booting, keep pressing F8 to get the menu for safe mode.

    Let me know the answer to the above question and/or if EasyBCD addition works (with or without safe mode.)

    Are you able to make out what it says on the screen at all? Or even any clues for me to go by? With the right information, you may be able to just delete a .sys file and bring the OS up.

    Unfortunately, that can't help you since you can't get into Vista in the first place to change any settings.

    If I see the video, who knows? Unlikely to help, but possible though.

    Ya, unfortunately, without the actual dump file that should be in Vista's Windows\Minidump folder, there's not much that can really be done besides guessing at drivers. It is a driver causing that though.

    It gives the same exact screen when trying safe mode?

    I'd be inclined to rid ALL of the drivers for the partition software you installed in Vista's Windows\System32\drivers
