dual boot with XP syntax error in boot loader device name for {ntldr}

On one of the PCs I installed 5536 on, the boot loader had a bug/syntax
problem for the 'Windows Legacy OS Loader' identifier of {ntldr}. The device
value was not set:

Windows Legacy OS Loader
------------------------
identifier {ntldr}
device unknown
path \ntldr
description Earlier Version of Windows

I'm clad fixing the device value with bcdedit and making device partition=c:
allowed be to boot to XP.

I have not yet sent in a report via the Vista bug reporting tool.
