    Dear Pillars, I didn't see your post re: reversing the hard drives until tonight. I don't know why, but whatever. One hd is SATA and the other ide, so I can't reverse them. However, I'm going to read over your post and proceed in the next couple days. I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks again...

    Thank You I don't know what happened to my reply from yesterday?? Anyway, I said thanks so much for the info! Not sure what I'm going to do now, but I'll figure something out. Later...

    Ah, thanks. I downloaded one of the XP discs, so I'm pretty sure it has SP2. So I'll use it or download the SATA drivers. That could be one of my problems! lol And I didn't know that about the boot loader, so I'll keep that in mind...

    Well, not havin' any luck. I tried writing MBR for XP (and I repaired the boot files). Didn't fix the boot problem. I disconnected the other drives and tried installing xp to the 20GB drive. Didn't work. Now I've made a 20GB partition on my C: drive of the 400GB drive (I think its called G:)...

    Alright, I have a few things to try now. I'm gonna write down what I did; in case it doesn't work, so I can tell you both. Terry, I did do the auto-config, but not since i've re-installed xp. Both of you seem to want to know which install is on which drive. Let's see. Win 7 is on C: (which has...

    Ah, ok. Well, no I can't get XP to boot at all. I've re-installed it, repaired it, disconnected the other (win 7) drive, used 3 different XP install discs. It always hangs at the same place. (If its not something easyBCD is going to help, I feel bad bothering you!) However, I do really...

    Ok, thanks! But, when I reboot, it goes to the windows selection for win7 or xp. It doesn't seem that easyBCD is functioning at startup. Also, when I do select xp, it sticks at the xp startup screen (you know where the little bars are supposed to move across; they don't). Makes me think that...

    Ok, first of all I've read quite a few posts but haven't found some answers yet. I can't get win xp to boot. Its on a separate drive from win 7 which I'm now using. I read about "how to install vista/7 first then xp". I did all that, except xp doesn't load like it says it should. Therefore, I...
