    Ok Back home now so I just had a look at Vista Options and If you right click on "Computer" and click properites, then go to Advanced system settings on the left hand list, then to the Advanced Tab there is the Startup & Recovery option, have a look in there and see if the option to display the OS to boot from is checked?? I do remember in XP you could actually add the line in but it doesnt seem to let you in Vista. Its a good place to start anyway. Hope it helps.
