    Dualbooting Vista/XP where is boot.ini

    I was able to work this all out using EasyBCD to setup my Linux partition. I also found my boot.ini while booted into Linux. Funny it didn't show up with show hidden files and folders checked. All is good.

    Dualbooting Vista/XP where is boot.ini

    How is it that the system is booting fine into XP or Vista with no boot.ini? Is it because it's using Vista's bootloader? Should I add an entry for Linux using EasyBCD?

    Dualbooting Vista/XP where is boot.ini

    Well XP is saying the boot.ini is nonexistent and it's nowhere to be found on the Vista side either.

    Vista/XP Dualboot, no F8 option for XP

    Terry I actually prefer having XP offline when booted into Vista, I have a seperate data partition to access in both OS's. Having the XP partition offline makes it safer from getting infected by virii that I might come across while booted in Vista. It also makes virus/registry scans quicker.

    Vista/XP Dualboot, no F8 option for XP

    Well it worked for me. I had to edit the registry in both the Vista and XP Registries. System restore points are O.K. in both OS's.

    Vista/XP Dualboot, no F8 option for XP

    Thanks, but I went ahead and edited the Registry in the Vista and XP partitions to hide the opposing system partitions when booted into one or the other. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926185
