Windows 7 n XP dual boot setting...


New Member
I upgraded my cpu to windows 7 n added my old hdd .
Installed windows xp on the 2nd hdd (E drive when in Windows 7 , D drive in Windows XP)

However i could only get this dual boot success by using this setting

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader Timeout: 10 seconds.
Default OS: Windows 7

Entry #1

Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #2

Name: Windows XP
BCD ID: {6e563ef7-cb4a-11de-80f4-dc052053f127}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NTLDR

When i change my 2nd Entry to D:\
I can't get boot into windows xp

Is there a problem??

HI pokkax,welcome to NST.
No problem. That's how it works.
(see points 3 and 5 in the sticky thread)

But i managed to get it work on D drive at first...haha
By adjusting the boot order in the BIOS, to put XP's disk first, no doubt...
