    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! :)
