Vista and XP Dual-Boot


Distinguished Member
I'm going to triple-boot my laptop. It already has vista and ubuntu dual-booted, and I'm going to try and install XP. However, I'm a bit nervous about EasyBCD because of my previous incedents with it. So, I'm going to use a method I found on the net:

3) Boot to a Vista disc and run the Startup Repair option
4) Boot normally into Vista and add the XP installation to the bootloader using these commands:
bcdedit –set {ntldr} device partition=C:
bcdedit –set {ntldr} path \ntldr
bcdedit –displayorder {ntldr} –addlast
bcdedit -set {ntldr} description “Microsoft Windows XP”

I just wanted to know what the people here thought of this method.
You're welcome :smile:

Those revised instructions should work just fine, without any complications. At essence, they're the same as those that you posted above.
