I ended up having to install Windows Server 2008 on another drive, which built a new bootloader. I updated my boot loader to select the old one only and wiped the new install so as to remain in adherence to the license.

"If you put the disk (either Windows Vista or 2008) in and click repair, it should be able to scan for common startup problems. One of them will check for the Boot Manager files and active partitions e.t.c.

It should be able to get you going quickly. If the automatic scanner doesn't work, you may have to click on the ""Startup Repair"" option."
