I'm kind of desperate to get back into my XP Installation, I hope someone can explain this issue.

You set up a multi-boot menu when Windows 7 is running and you only need to run 3 commands:

bcdedit /copy {current} /d "XP"

You will get this message with DIFFERENT guid numbers

The entry was successfully copied to {bda1ead3-8577-11de-883c-00226808ae4c}

Use YOUR guid number in the 2 following commands:

bcdedit /set { YOUR GUID NUMBER } osdevice partition=E:

bcdedit /set { YOUR GUID NUMBER } description "XP"


That's it.... you can even run Msconfig and look under the Boot tab and see it.. and modify the priority and time to default to the first entry.


I think Xp will run from a win 7 multi-boot menu.

Microsoft has relased the virtual XP mode for win 7 but the graphics are limited to 2d.
