    if you installed windows correctly and your graphic card is still not recognized try repairing the boot camp drivers...

    To repair Boot Camp drivers:
    1 Start up your computer in Windows.
    2 Insert your Mac OS X Leopard installation disc.
    3 Double-click the setup.exe file if the installer doesn’t open automatically.
    4 Click Repair and follow the onscreen instructions.
    If a message appears that says the software you are installing has not passed Windows
    Logo testing, click Continue Anyway.

    If you need to reinstall specific drivers, you can install one driver at a time. For example,
    if your built-in iSight camera isn’t working, you can reinstall just the iSight driver.
    Individual drivers are in the Drivers folder on the Mac OS X Leopard installation disc.
    To reinstall a specific driver:
    1 Insert your Mac OS X Leopard installation disc.
    2 Quit AutoRun if it opens.
    3 Using Windows Explorer, locate the driver that you want to reinstall.
    4 Open the driver to start the installation.

    hope this helps...

    The problem might be that Boot Camp doesn't have drivers for Vista 64.

    64bit vista is only supported in the latest 8-core Mac Pro. :D

    That may be the reason why your drivers are not working. I suggest you use a 32-bit flavor instead.

    Oh and by the way, this is noted in the IMPORTANT box of the Boot Camp Install Guide pdf. Page 4 to be exact. Just incase you missed it or did not read it.

    Have you pressed the "option" button while booting up? This will display which OS you want to boot. Select mac os then it will boot up the selected os.

    HTH.
