I've not used the GAG boot manager, but strongly suspect that you can rid yourself of it by opening up a command prompt on the Vista box, and using "fdisk /mbr". This should restore you to "Vista Only" boots if that is what you are after.

I assume that this removal of GAG is related to a removal of a Linux distro as well. What distro, and why are you reverting to using only Windows? Just curious.

Best of luck.

Pretty sure that doesn't work with Vista.
See this article on technet.
