    new to easyBCD 2.0.2

    Yes Windows XP with service pack two slipstreamed into it should be fine. No need to download any SATA drivers. Terry, I believe it is service pack one that exceeded the 128 (137GB (48-bit LBA support)” gigabyte barrier. It also is the service pack that adds support for SATA drives. However, a...

    new to easyBCD 2.0.2

    I think it would be best to reverse the order of the two internal hard disks so that Windows 7 is on hard disk zero. I think if you just swap the two data cables you should be able to accomplish this. I did a test of today with a second hard disk and successfully booted Windows XP on the second...

    Windows 7 Blinking Cursor after clean install

    The rEFIt Project Addendum: Another thought. You could partition the MacBook and install 10.5 Leopard. Then you can boot into 10 five Leopard and from there you should be able to get Ubuntu to boot off a USB stick.

    Windows 7 Blinking Cursor after clean install

    I would test the Windows 7 install disk again to make sure that it is good. Also did you try setting the BIOS settings to the failsafe settings? Another thing I recommend is to remove the motherboard battery for 30 minutes. That should also reset the BIOS settings. My guess is the problem has...

    Windows 7 Blinking Cursor after clean install

    It looks like the Windows 7 install procedure doesn’t like something about your hardware. Several things come to mind. 1: Have you tried changing your BIOS settings to the failsafe settings? 2: When you installed Windows XP did you do a full format of the entire hard drive? This should check...
