Hi so I just done a fresh install of Vista on (C:smile: and Windows XP on (D:smile: I then put the vista DVD in and repaired the boot. Now I have installed EasyBCD 1.7.1 and I go to Add/Remove Entries and select Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3 from the drop down and now here is the problem! I think I am ment to select the drive that Windows XP is on which is D: BUT the drop down menu is grey :frowning:


Anyone know what i done wrong?

Here is a screenshot so show you what I mean.

I tried looking at mine and get the same thing.

I think you need to hit the button that says "Change Settings." Look under "Entry-Based Settings" and it says "Choose an OS to change the associated settings." Open the drop-down menu, click on the XP one, open the drop-down menu for the Drive and see if you can change it to "D:\"

The XP may already be assigned that letter because mine is. Good luck.

EasyBCD will automatically choose the right drive letter for the XP entry. You cannot manually select it since it's not necessarily the drive that XP is installed to, but rather your boot drive where NTLDR and NTDETECT are.
