me 2: XP won't start

#1
Similar problem to most, XP won't start, but I do get this error
Code:
      status=0xc000000f

      \Ntldr
Since then I had extracted fresh version of Ntldr and Ntdetect on the root drive but to no avail.

If I reinstall xp it works but vista is gone then. If I reinstall vista boot loader it goes back and vista works, but still the same isuue with NT.

Please help,

Here is my diagnostic reports.

Booth NT and Vista are on the same partition.

CVista which was pre installed is on C:
zp which I installed is on F:

Hi Marki,

Change the drive letter for XP from F: to C: - that should take care of it :smile:

Guru you are right!

Simply changed the drive of xp to C: (where boot.ini, Ntldr and ntdetect.com resides)

:unamused:

That did it for my multi boot:??:happy:

Thanks,

Marki.
