I get this very same error every time I boot (startup, not shutdown).
It appears twice in the system log ("*Crash dump initialization
failed!*" by *volmgr* with *event id 46*). I have absolutely no issues
with my Vista but I'd like to get rid of this error nevertheless. So far
I've been unable to track the source of the problem.

I have SP1 and the latest updates installed.

After I installed Vista SP1, I noticed two entries in the event viewer after
every boot

Event ID 46 Volmgr Event ID 46 Crash Dump Initialization failed!

I noticed quite a few people have this problem. Here was my solution.

Goto Control Panel\System and Maintenance\System
Click on "Advanced System Settings" on the left panel
Under "Startup and Recovery" select "Settings"
Make sure you have a check mark beside "Write and event to the system log"

I always disabled these settings on XP and Vista before SP1, but it appears
this causes the above error message after Vista SP1 is installed.
This worked for me, I hope it helps somebody else.
