obviously no-one can see the future, but were these ever tackled successfully by microsoft? i want to sort out a mate with windows 7 but don't want to modify the bios on his laptop. i also don't want to have to keep on updating the loader for him though. did they have to be updated every now and again with vista? i only tried vistaloader once without much success. i managed to remove it and modify the bios instead. (thanks guys!).
