    Cannot dual boot anymore

    Should of mentioned that the power was knocked out a while ago and I had nothing was booting so I did have to go back into BIOS to rearrange the order. I had to run the Vista repair disc to get it back so that is probably what happened. Never booted into XP during that time period until a few...

    Cannot dual boot anymore

    Installed the new beta version and let it set up by itself and I still get the same error message. Here is hopefully some better screenshots of how things look now.

    Cannot dual boot anymore

    This is how I tried setting it up. I read that sticky and this is the error I am having: NTLDR is missing or corrupt (or one of its variants) In the sticky you said "Make sure the Windows XP entry in EasyBCD points to the system drive and keep in mind that this is not necessarily the same...

    Cannot dual boot anymore

    Have had Vista and XP dual booted on my machine for a few years without easyBCD. A couple days ago, I can no longer boot into XP because it bypasses the boot select screen and boots directly into Vista. I tried using easyBCD to boot back into XP, but I don't think I configured it correctly. I...

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    If by that you mean booting back into vista and using EBCD to add Linux like the wiki says, yes.

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    I am still getting the cannot load from harddisk. To avoid IDE and SATA confusion, I even shrunk my main SATA drive Vista is on and tried installing it on the same drive with the same message. I'm not sure why it isn't loading, I scanned the Ubuntu disk for problems but it is clean. ??? I'm...

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    OK, I will try that out. Does it matter that I am using the 64 bit ver. of Vista? Also, Vista is installed on a SATA drive and Ubuntu on an IDE drive, so would that have anything to do with it?

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    Alright. I have gotten rid of that old slow harddrive. I shrunk down one of my brand new backup harddrives to try it out again. After doing everything step by step from the Wiki, I get this message when I try to boot into Ubuntu: BootPart 2.60 Bootsector (c) 1993-2005 Griles Vollant BootPart...

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    Turns out it was that old hard drive I found laying around that slowed down the boot time. I'm guessing maybe the hard drive is too old to work with so I'll try the Ubuntu triple boot sometime in the future. Thanks for everyone's support.

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    I installed EasyBCD and TweakVI. Maybe I pressed something in TweakVI that messed something up so I will restore everything and see if that helps out.

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    Can anyone help me out any further? Do I just have to keep playing around with settings until it will boot? Also, if I reboot my PC to the Vista side it takes very long to start up I would say 7-10min. It used to boot up right away, did I screw up somewhere?

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    OK followed the directions but now when I boot over to ubuntu it says that it could not load the BOOTMGR. I followed everything from these directions Ubuntu - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki. However, there were a few things I ran into that confused me though. In step 3 , you say to use the...

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    I was following the old instructions using the reiserfs way of doing it. I will give it a shot with those new instructions and let you know how it went. As for #ubuntu, it seemed that some people were trying to help me but I couldn't really follow along because the channel must have been...

    Triple boot vista64/xp/ubuntu FDisk error

    I did use raiserfs. The drive that has Ubuntu is an older IDE drive and the other OS's are on an SATA drive, not sure if that really matters. Here is what things are like right now: There are a total of 3 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader. Bootloader Timeout: 10 seconds. Default OS...
