Triple-boot Problem

#1
I have 2 Windows XP installations (drives C: and E:smile: and one Windows Vista installation (drive V:smile:

I have no problem booting into the first XP installation (drive C:smile: or into Vista (drive V:smile:. However, when I want to boot into the second XP installation (drive E:smile:, EasyBCD boots me into the first Windows XP (drive C:smile: instead.

I have the following settings in EasyBCD 1.5:

There are a total of 3 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader TimeOut: 30 seconds.
Default OS: Windows Vista (V:smile:

Entry #1

Name: Windows XP (C:smile:
BCD ID: {ntldr}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \ntldr
Windows Directory:

Entry #2

Name: Windows Vista (V:smile:
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: V:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #3

Name: Windows XP (E:smile:
BCD ID: {80ddac29-6992-11db-92db-000c763fb2e8}
Drive: E:\
Bootloader Path: \ntldr
Windows Directory:

Any help would be much appreciated.

Delete the Entry for Drive E: and re-create it, that might help.

I have exactly the same setup and I believe I'm right in saying that your 2 XP's have to be listed before Vista.
Plus they will no doubt show up as only one system when you boot until you get a second screen offering you a choice of XP's. So be careful to label them individually.

^ until EasyBCD 1.6 that is :grinning:

With 1.6 the second boot menu will be abolished.
