Dual Boot

#1
On my laptop I have two systems installed, partition 1 win 10, partition 2 win xp. Only xp boots, how can I have dual boot installed?

There's a guide here: EasyBCD Basics
I would install EasyBCD on XP and then add the Win 10 entry. You'll need to restart for it to take effect.

Peter,
I used EasyBCD, after I couldn't boot XP. So I bought Easy RE for XP Pro, I ran Automatic Recover, it corrupted the XP, now I guess I will have to reinstall Win XP.

If you'd backed up the BCD in EasyBCD maybe it would have restored the boot. The EasyRE discs are not meant to replace a system disc (they can't by International law) but I can't really speak much for EasyRE as I've never used it. All support for it is via email as per
Forum Closed: Send EasyRE support requests to EasyRE@NeoSmart.net

Please note, by law, these discs cannot be replacements for an operating system disc so can't work in all cases.
Neosmart has a refund policy as outlined here: Refund Policy - NeoSmart Technologies

Peter,

Thank you.
Now XP asks for login, after I enter name and password, it will ask to login again and again.
Does the same when I boot it in safe mode.
Is there any solution to go around login?

We aren't allowed to talk about breaking through passwords I'm sorry. A Google search might be of help there.

Looking at your OP, I'm assuming that you might have installed XP after W10 and back-levelled the boot files.
