Another Dual Boot Problem with Win 7 and XP


New Member
Hi , new member here who would deeply appreciate a little help. I recently installed Win 7 64 bit on a RAID0 installation. Win 7 did not create an entry for XP Pro, so I downloaded EasyBCD 2.0 (BETA) and manually created the entry. When I boot up and select WinXP from the boot menu, I get the WinXP splash screen and then immediately BSOD and reboot. Win 7 works fine when selected from the menu.

Hardware: Asus P6T(V)2 w/12GB RAM, Intel 965@3.20Ghz, GTX 295, four WD300GLFS Raptors (two in RAID0 with Win 7, one for Win 7 data, and one with XP Pro), one WD1002 1TB for system backups, LG GGW-H20L Blue Ray DVD, and a SB X-Fi.

Contents of the bootloader:

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.
Default: Microsoft Windows XP
Timeout: 30 seconds.
EasyBCD Boot Device: F:\
Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Entry #2
Name: Microsoft Windows XP
BCD ID: {default}
Drive: F:\
Bootloader Path: \NTLDR

If someone could give me a little advice, I'd surely appreciate it. I'd like to keep the XP installation, just for peace of mind until I'm confident in Win 7.

Thanks, Dave
