Dual Boot xp doesnt work


Two PC 2 HDD XP and W7 each

One works fine!

second one gives: ntoskrnl.exe missing for starting windows XP

P.l.s. instruct!

Negative, I assume that v2 stands for EasyBCD 2.0 Beta which I used. Any other ideas or information needed?



Dear Guru,

Problem solved. I dicovered that from the working pc the boot ini file was changed by easybcd 2.0.

The other pc was not changed. I discovered that under windows7 my xp HD was not vissible by explorer.

After some windows tricks it was recognised. EasyBCD did her work fine.

Both PC's do dual boot now.

Thanks for this program, mail me if ther are any questions left.
