Changing versions of Windows 7


New Member
I'm currently using EasyBCD 1.7.2 to dual-boot XP and Win 7 RC. I'm going to wipe Win 7 RC and install the new release of Win 7. What is the best way to handle this as far as EasyBCD is concerned? Should I re-install the original XP bootloader, and then install EasyBCD 2.0 after I install Win 7?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Jim.

Just boot from the Windows 7 DVD and install what you want.

After setup is finished, if you are not able to dual-boot between XP & 7 the use EasyBCD from W7 to add an XP entry.


Oh, and don't use EasyBCD 1.7.2. There's a new version here: EasyBCD 2.0 Beta Builds - The NeoSmart Forums
