Run EasyBCD from Windows 7 or XP?

#1
The instructions I have seen for EasyBCD say to run EasyBCD from XP. But I am guessing that this is because Windows 7 was installed first and then XP.

I did just that but had a problem running EasyBCD on XP so I fixed my Windows 7 Boot so I can get to my email so I can register for this forum.

Now just Windows 7 boots but XP is still installed. Can I run EasyBCD from Windows 7?

Or how can I get XP to boot again withing reinstalling it?

Addendum:

Got it working from Windows 7! :smile:

I am instaled EasyBCD on XP and in Bootloader Setup write MBR /instal the Windows Vista/7 boot-loader to the MBR - this is OK, but in Add New entru option Windows NT/XP?2003 dont. Message:"BCD Execution Error: An error occured while attemting the specified create operation.System could not allocate the required space in a registry log." My PC now start only with Win7, I can`t start XP.
