xp cannot boot in

#1
Hello
I have dual booting in my machine (Xp and vista). Vista was accidentally corrupt and I did a recovery for it. Everything works fine until the point where I need to select which operating system I want to boot in. I get the options Vista and ‘previous version of windows’ which is actually the Xp, vista loads fine but XP will not load. Just dunno what to do next....

Please help!

Thanks a lot

Mayra

Nope.

Vista will keep on ticking merrily along, but you'll need to follow the instructions in the link above to get it to boot.
