Dual Boot Vista 64 and Xp Pro 32 Problem

Hello everyone. I am having the same exact problem as this guy.


I have Vista Homne Premium installed on a SATA drive and xp pro installed on an older IDE drive. When i set the bios to boot from vista drive i get the boot screen but when i choose xp pro as my os in the boot loader i get the same exact error as the guy above. The only difference is that my xp is not corrupt because when i change the bios to boot from the xp HD first i can use xp with no problem. I dont no what to do.

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader TimeOut: 30 seconds.
Default OS: Microsoft Windows Vista

Entry #1

Hi Tamburra, welcome to NST.
You have to re-create your boot.ini file and stick it in the same drive that has the BOOT folder.
Do you need help doing that?
