    Exclamation Vista 32-bit / XP 64 bit Problem

    Hi,

    My laptop came preinstalled with Vista 32-bit Home Premium and I partitioned the hard disk and I installed XP Professional 64 bit in the second drive. Not I installed the Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package (x64).

    When i open EasyBCD I get the Error No Valid Entries Found.


    After I install EasyBCD 1.7.2 I get an weird error when I try to add a partition.

    HTML Code:
    EasyBCD 1.7.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.
    
    For example:
    
    <configuration>
        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>
    
    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.
    Even if I click continue nothing happens. First I was doing the mistake without installing .Net 2.0 but I am having problems for few days. Some Help would really be great.

    - Thank You.

    If you're having problems getting EasyBCD to work on XP, you can always boot your Vista DVD and select "repair". Then when Vista fixes the bootloader itself, you can run EasyBCD inside Vista to tidy up your dual boot.

    You say that you first tried to run EasyBCD before realizing it needed NET 2.0. Have you tried uninstall/reinstall since adding NET 2.0 ?

    Yes your best bet is to repair the Vista boot loader with the DVD. If you do not have that then use the one we have created:

    Download: Windows Vista x64 Recovery Disc The NeoSmart Files

    That will allow you to recovery your Vista bootloader. From there go back into Vista and add XP to it. Read up on the documentation in the Wiki for all the information in regards to that.

    Hi,

    Yeah I installed NET 2.0 then uninstalled EASYBCD in Windows XP. I recovered to boot into Vista with my recovery disk. I will try to install EasyBCD in Vista and try to dual boot and post my response. Thank You for your Support.
