Windows 7 booting problem
I am in a bad trouble with two operating systems-xp and windows 7.
I had windows xp. Some days ago I installed windows 7 evaluation copy and i loved it. Xp was in C: drive. I got windows 7 from one of my friends and
installed it in D: drive from a pen drive; it was non-bootable.
After using both operating systems for about a month today I reinstalled windows xp and as you can guess windows 7 disappeared form the boot menu.
I totally forgot about the boot.ini file in C: drive and did not backup it. I don't know much about this, but I think, Windows 7 added an extra line with specific commands in that boot.ini file or something like that.
If you know what that command would be please let me know.
*Repairing windows 7 is not an option.
*Here is the boot.ini
[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 Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
