 Post subject: Dual boot problems...
New postPosted: Thu Jan 13, 2011 2:07 pm 

Hi ppl

I have a problem regarding the dual boot
on one drive partition is win XP Pro SP3 and on the other is win 7 ultimate, both are x86

I had some problems with the XP and I formated it and installed it freshly, after that reinstalation windows boot manager wouldn show me the option to choose which OS i wanna boot to

so the question i how to make the boot manager appear again

the boot.ini on the XP partition says this:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer

If you get Error loading Operating System after XP restarts:

* Using your Windows 7 installation disc, boot to the command prompt at startup.
* Type in these comands below, and press enter after each one.
o bootrec /FixMbr
o bootrec /FixBoot
o bootrec /RebuildBcd
* Exit the command prompt and restart the computer.

Thanks for trying UVAIS but the problem still presists

I tryed the steps you mentioned and even EasyBCD 2.0 but nothing it still boots just into XP

The boot.ini on the Xp partition didn't even change a lot, now it looks like this:
; This boot.ini was automatically generated by NeoSmart Technologies' BootGrabber.exe
; Use EasyBCD from http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 to manage your bootloader

[boot loader]
timeout=15
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP on C:\" /fastdetect


Is there any way to modify the boot.ini manually, or something like that ?

I think that if I reinstall win 7 the boot manager would fix itself cuz it is recomended to install the older OS first, right. But thats the last solution to try. So I'm askind you my friends to lead me to another way to fix my problem.

TIA

Try googling it because Vista and W7 have new ini boot set up compared to XP.
Ive seen Linux multi boot have massive hassles with only Vista and W7 boot sector commands being prioptry its all in the air for now.

Google repair xp/vista dual boot - boot sector problems,as I have had to do it last year some time.
