    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    Ah, got ya now. I thought that physical drives order is taken into account, didn't think about the boot sequence. Thanks again.

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    ARGH, stupid me :( Only thing I was missing all the time was proper boot.ini file. I feel so silly right now. :glare: I changed the rdisk value as you said and it is working now, thank you. Could you just explain me one thing: why does it have to be set to rdisk(1) instead of rdisk(0)? I...

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    This is what I have without XP entry: I also noticed that bootgrabber.exe hangs while adding the XP entry, this somehow skipped my attention last time. This is after adding the XP entry with automatic settings:

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    OK, I'm completely lost now, lol. Sorry to be such a pain in the arse with my questions. This is my current setup: http://ixolite.info/temp2/drivesnboot.png I noted what boot options do I get by setting each drive as a boot drive in BIOS, I can also take other drives out, leaving just the...

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    No, I don't mean winload.exe, I mean the BOOT folder and ntldr, bootmgr, ntdetect.com files. I had those copied from Vista drive to XP drive in order to use Vista bootloader to load both XP and Vista from the XP drive. I hope I make sense now, lol.

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    So replacing the Vista bootloader files with Win7 ones should help for the "unsigned" error? In that case, would restoring boot settings from backup work? I mean I'd like to make a backup of current setup, replace Vista bootloader files with Win7 bootloader files and restore the backup to...

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    Hmm... I did assign a drive letter to W7 boot partition but XP autoconfig did not work in the end - like I said, probably because of my strange boot setup on XP drive. Anyways, I noted down the error I get when trying to boot to Win7 from entry added on XP drive, it's in Polish so this...

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    That's exactly what I did. I think the problem is with my Frankenstein setup - I have ntldr copied from Vista drive to my XP drive, and for some reason, can't remember why, I have boot.ini only as a backed up file (windows boots from its folder instead of using boot.ini file). I'm kinda...

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    Uhh, I wasn't clear enough - I was trying to add XP entry on Win7 drive. On the XP drive I did try adding Win7 entry as Vista/Longhorn type but it did not work as I described above.

    Dual/Triple boot Win XP/Vista/7 with separate drives

    OK, I'm a bit at a loss now, trying to setup dual/triple boot of XP, Vista and Seven each installed on separate drive. But first things first. I had WinXP installation on one drive. Then I got another, which I installed Vista to. But I did so with XP drive unplugged, so I could boot to...

    Triple boot with separate drives

    I kind of gave up for now. Problem is that I have Linux on separate drive, not seperate partition, it boots fine when it's disk is first in boot order. I do have GRUB on Linux partition on Linux drive, I also did try to add it from EasyBCD - it just bumps me back to boot selection screen. I...

    Triple boot with separate drives

    Well, better be safe than sorry ;) I fubared my XP installations before and since I really need that for work, I didn't want to take any chances... I read the documentation but since I have such a big mess done it isn't really helpful for me :( The main problem is the drive naming - I am...

    Triple boot with separate drives

    I couldn't find any solution close enough to my situation... OK, let's start from the beginning - I'm a linux noob so I was looking for some easy solutions for my problem. What I want is being able to triple boot Vista, XP and Ubuntu 7.04 from a single boot menu or if it is not possible...
