Good reference, how to dual boot Vista and Linux with BitLocker enabled.

Last weekend I spun up a dual boot environment with Ubuntu and Vista.  It worked find even with BitLocker enabled TPM+PIN.  I used Grub as the boot loader but here are instructions for using Vista's boot loader.

BTW, I found to remove Grub and put back the Vista boot menu I had to boot the Vista DVD and run bootrec.  I tried all four options but /Fixboot appear to be the one that fixed the MBR.

(edit 7/30/2007: I've performed this many, many times since March and it looks like to fully restore the boot loader you need to run bootrec with both /fixmbr and /fixboot.  Has worked every time.)
