EasyBCD 1.7.2 doesn't show drives


New Member
Im trying to dual boot Vista and XP
When I go in EasyBCD to Add/Remove Entries, select Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3 from the drop-down list, I can't choose the drive for XP. I can only do it on Vista/Longhorn
Please help!


I fixed that problem, however, now I can't boot XP because it tells me to fix it (Might be bootloader problem)
In EasyBCD's View Settings tab it shows that XP's bootloader path is \NTLDR, however, I can't see that folder anywhere on my drive.

You're not supposed to fix the problem, EasyBCD will figure out for itself where the entry should point.

This is all explained in the documentation at Windows XP - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

Your missign 3 files. NTLDR, NTDETECT and boot.ini on the boot drive. Unhide all the files including the system protected ones and move them to the boot drive.
