Choosing disk / partition

Hi - I have a disk with Win XP on it and I can't boot from it.
I have another disk with XP which is working fine and from which I can run EasyBCD.
The problem is that I can't choose the disk / partition to work on.
Only in the "Bootloader Setup" of EasyBCD there is an option to install the BCD and write the MBR, but even after doing so the disk fails to boot. There seems to be no option to use the other EasyBCD options - like "Edit Boot Menu" on another disk than the booted one.
Please help. Thank's, Frank.

EasyBCD, as the name implies, is an app for managing the Vista/7 BCD.
The BCD doesn't exist in XP. You can only use the app in and for XP as a part of a Vista/7 multi-boot.
The facilities for regenerating the BCD are inhibited in an environment that doesn't include either Vista or W7.
