    boot using XP Setup CD and enter into Recovery Console, now give following commands:

    fixmbr
    fixboot


    It'll remove the new Vista Loader. Not u can safely boot into XP and then format the partition, where u installed Vista ;)

    if u have not already done the above mentions method

    simply put the vista beta 2 dvd in the drive, then start->

    E:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force

    now reboot, & vista will be removed from the MBR, in a safe way, now just format the partition
