    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    Thanks for the help and the time you've spent trying to get me fixed, CG. I decided last night to pull the Vista drive out and try to get back to XP, then spent more than four hours trying to repair my XP. Turns out the Windows installation had become corrupted at some point, I couldn't even...

    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    It's hard to say since it's on a SATA drive.. Windows shows it as Disk 1, (Disk 0 is shown to be the Vista drive) and since there is only one partition on it it must be partition 1 as well... This doesn't seem quite right to me as I know that IDE drives go in a progression from Disk 0 to Disk...

    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    Well I've got a new error message, at least :p Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe. Please re-install a copy of the above file. What I don't get is this: If it can get further while on D: drive, why can't it get...

    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    Ok, did that and got the same results.. I tried it with EasyBCD using XP as C:, then as F:, getting the same results as before. I'm starting to think that my XP drive was permanantly changed to F:... Any ideas?

    Ok, I copied the files to the C: drive and rebooted, hit the XP, and this is the error that I received: Invalid BOOT.INI file Booting from C:\windows\ NTDETECT failed I believe this is the same message that I was receiving before, when I instructed EasyBCD to use F: as the XP drive.

    Both files are in the root of the F: drive.. Are they supposed to be somewhere else?

    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    Ok, this is the message I get when EasyBCD has XP set on C: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: blah blah blah. File: \ntldr Status: 0xc000000f Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is...

    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    Thanks for the quick reply :) Yes, I've tried setting EasyBCD to use C: for XP, and when I do that, I get a different error when I try to boot to it. It gives an error code and sends me back to the boot menu. If you need the exact message, let me know and I'll get it for you.

    Vista/XP Pro Problems...

    I've been running XP Pro for years, but I wanted to take a serious look at Vista and I didn't have a spare computer around. I grabbed an extra 40GB drive, installed it, and proceeded to install Vista Build 5600 x64. Install went great, but then I wanted to get back into my XP install.. This...
