I have a bit of a problem with my drives..
I've been running Windows 7 x64 for a while, but needed winXP x86 for some older apps.
So I installed XP on a different partition on another drive - Install went well but messed up my MBR pretty bad.
I used the bootsect tool in commandline on the DVD to make Windows 7 work again. But I couldn't make the XP work..
Then I took out the drive Windows 7 is installed on to reinstall XP on the other disk.
That went fine so I had a working XP but only when the Windows 7 drive was not connected.
I reconnected the Windows 7 drive and booted up the install/repair Windows 7 from the DVD - I was prompted to repair Windows 7 so I did (not in command line - it was a dialog box)
So now I'm thinking great, Windows 7 will work again. But no... XP booted up, but this time with the Windows 7 drive connected
As i browsed my drives to see which have some "boot files" on them I discovered a total mess! 3 partitions have boot files on them and I'm not sure which it uses.
I'm really confused as to what action I should take to make it all work as intended (What I want is a dual boot menu at startup)
I've attached a screenshot from the disk management tool in XP to give you an idea of what I'm up against
(partition F: has the XP install - C: has "boot files" - L: and D: are fine and have no "boot files" - E: has "boot files" - H: and J: is the Windows 7 install)
I really hope some of you understand what I'm talking about, and any help will be much appreciated!
Thank you all in advance.
