The premium installer is deleting boot.ini from at least some systems. This kills your machine. Make a copy, and make sure you replace it after install, if it gets whacked.Vista users aren't affected,
but haha you're using Vista, you should kill yourself anyway.

may help with repairing a fucked system. Protip: don't reboot.IF YOU HAVEN'T INSTALLED YET INSTRUCTIONSDO THIS BEFORE YOU RUN THE PREMIUM INSTALLER. I DON'T CARE IF YOU CAN SEE A BOOT.INI IN EXPLORER OR NOT
Save a Backup Copy of Boot.ini
1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
3. Under System Startup, click Edit. This opens the file in Notepad ready for editing.
4. In Notepad, click File on the Menu bar, and then click Save As.
5. Save a copy as "boot.bak"
After you install the premium update, if you try to repeat the steps above and you're hosed, you'll get an error message that boot.ini is gone around step 2.
Go to the Start Menu->Run...
rename boot.bak boot.ini
And your system will be back to normal.
I just verified that this happened on my own system. Although I have it set to show invisible files there was no boot.ini file visible in either Explorer or the shell before. Nevertheless, after running the updater I got the error at step 2 above.IF YOU ALREADY INSTALLED WITHOUT BACKING UP INSTRUCTIONS
Two choices:IF YOU HAVEN'T REBOOTED YET, YOU CAN FIX IT FROM WINDOWS
IF YOU REBOOTED AND YOUR SYSTEM DOESN'T BOOT ANYMORE:
