Hi, A friend of mine has tried to install Windows XP on a Vista pre-loaded HP Pavillion notebook, thinking it would automatically dual-boot. When he couldn't, he told me to fix it. To keep it short, I managed to boot Vista normally using my own Windows DVD. However, he installed XP onto the recovery partition and that partition doesn't appear bootable anymore in neither BIOS (pressing F11), nor EasyBCD. The files are all there but not as a bootable partition. And he didn't even create rescue disks. All in all, I can't creat rescue disks, and I can't use the partition for rescue. Hence, is there an EasyBCD trick to make that bootable again? Sorry for my confusing message and thanks a lot in advance.... P.S. AFAIK, that partition uses WinPE to load itself.
