I will bet anything that you guys all have Service Pack 1 of Windows Vista installed, right? Apparently I and another user are having a similar problem with the labelling of pre-installation environment applications. In our case, it is with the Symantec Recovery Disk component of Symantec Norton Ghost 12.0. Read this: http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPo...6&SiteID=17. Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista seems to be the culprit. I believe that Windows Vista Service Pack 1 has introduced us to a new problem, which may not necessarily be a problem, but rather work in progress that has not yet been completed: the life story of Microsoft. I figure that Microsoft is trying to have three groups of boot options: Windows Vista platforms; Legacy Windows platforms; and pre-installation environment options (the problem that we are currently facing). Hopefully we will see some kind of a resolution in the near future. In the meantime, I am going to go to a computer store and experiment with the Symantec Recovery Disk on one of their computers to determine whether I can reproduce the problem and therefore determine that Service Pack 1 is indeed the guilty party without any doubt.
