Dual boot two seperate hard drives 8 and xp

#1
I have Windows 8 and Windows XP in dual boot, Windows 8 on a SSD and XP on a HDD and another HDD with nothing on it. Everything was going fine until the power went out, now I can only boot from Windows 8. Have posted images of EasyBCD and Windows Boot Manager page. I have Windows 8 instead of Windows 7. Had a hard time posting images, this was the only way I could post them.

Hello Terry I forgot to add the most important part in my first post when I do choose XP I get the message file is missing <windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe. Thank you for helping me again with my problems Terry.

Try deleting the XP entry and adding it again.
Let EasyBCD auto-configure the new entry.

Hello Terry Thank you that worked. The first two times I deleted XP and added it again it added two XP entries to the Windows Boot Manager, every time I tried to delete one it went back to the same thing, no XP, the third time I tried it worked. When the two XP entries were in the Windows Boot Manager both would boot to XP. Anyway now it is working, thank you.
