Hello neosmart and everyone, I am Max. I hope you can have some time to help me with my problem. So here it goes: 1. I have a laptop, pre-installed with Windows Vista. 2. I didn't like Windows Vista, so I upgraded it to Windows 7 which was successful. 3. Because I like to play 3D games, I wanted to install Windows XP Home Edition to give most of the laptop resources to the game. My RAM was really a problem which was only 1GB, originally. We upgraded it, though, to 2GB now. Now I can play better, but still I wanted to install Windows XP. 4. I installed Windows XP. I used wintoflash to make my usb flash drive bootable with the Windows XP ISO since my DVD-ROM won't work, and my external DVD-ROM won't boot too. Now here comes the problem, I followed the guide on how to use wintoflash. First, I chose the first option which was "1st, text mode setup (Boot from flash again after finished)" http://i1078.photobucket.com/albums/w500/iloveyousomuch78/boot.jp <<this is the boot.ini from the usb flash drive I used to install WinXP on my computer. The same text appears on startup except for the multi(0)disk(0)....etc.>> Win XP was installing and then it needs to reboot, right? So, on the guide it says to choose the "2nd, GUI mode setup, continue setup + 1st start of Windows" next. But when i choose that option, the screen just goes blank and black. I kept repeating this until I decided to try on the "Debug boot rDisk 1 partition 2" option. Yayyy! I got windows XP! It booted to Win XP right there and then. I was so happy that I got winXP, I stopped and took out the usb flash drive which I used then after some time, I restarted my laptop. Now Win XP won't boot. And I can't boot to Windows 7 too! I installed easybcd but then it can't add windows xp to the dual boot. When I boot with the hard drive, it tells something like "Invalid boot file, Booting C:\Windows" if I am not mistaken. I search on the internet about my problem but I can't just find the specific one. There is a boot.ini on my usb flash drive too, I guess it is the problem. And I think I messed with my laptop(and easybcd, plus the boot.ini's) pretty well too, now it loads grub when I boot from the hard drive but still can't get to windows. Please help me guys I have been like this for like 2 weeks now, and I am really having a lot of problems because I need to use my laptop and internet for my projects in university Please I would really appreciate any kind of help. Thank you! Please pray to God always. God bless us all!
