I've just installed F11 on my wife's machine, which is some cheap
Gateway thing. Everything is working fine except that Vista (I'm hoping
to be able to get rid of it for her, but not yet...) will not boot from
grub. It starts to boot, then dies and dumps me into the System Recovery
thing. I was able to restore the MBR as Vista wants it to be, and then
it would boot fine again, and so I can use the popup boot chooser either
to boot Vista or to find my way into grub. But this is not really what I
want. I'd rather just use grub.

Am experiencing the exact same thing. I have used vista AND windows 7
and got the same result.  Vista does what you experienced, and Windows 7
gets a boot mgr missing.

Googling a bit suggests adding "makeactive" to the Vista boot section. I won't be able to try this for a while, though. Let me know if you do....
