Thanks for the advice Jordan.
I followed your instructions and things looks better:

sda3: __________________________________________________________________________

    File system:       ntfs
    Boot sector type:  Windows Vista/7
    Boot sector info:   No errors found in the Boot Parameter Block.
    Operating System:  Windows Vista
    Boot files:        /bootmgr /Boot/BCD /Windows/System32/winload.exe

It did not resolve the problem as I expected.
Before the machine would just hang when I try to boot into Vista.
Now the machine will just reboot when I try to boot into Vista.
I reinstalled GRUB but that didn't seem to help.

Do you have any more advice for me?
