Windows 7: Cannot boot Win7 RC from Vista boot manager.

Vista x64 / 7 X64

You have Vista bootmgr and boot folder and the XP bootfiles , ntldr and boot.ini on Disk 0.

If you make E ( Disk2 ) system partition as I posted earlier - you can then remove Disk1 when you like.

You can add XP to 7 boot menu afterwards.
