Also put the partition number , e.g. 1 if the first partition on that Disk , or 2 if the second, etc.

So if XP is on Disk1 partition 1 , it should read:

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP" /fastdetect

I don't understand that 100%. My XP installation is on Disk 0. Here is what my boot.ini file from XP says:

Quote:
;
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
;
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /NOEXECUTE=OPTOUT /NUMPROC=2
c:\CMDCONS\BOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /CMDCONS

I don't know how to find the boot.ini for Windows 7.
