XP and Windows 7 Dual boot file problem
I used the given tutorial and installed Xp with windows 7 prevoiusly installed.But I forgot to change the drive letter during EasyBCD setup as I installed XP on different drive.
Afterward I booted with Win 7 and changed the drive letter for the drives including the one in which XP was installed. After that on booting with XP I am getting error msg
"Windows cud not start coz of comp disk hardware config problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Chk boot path & disk hardware."
Here is the Screen Shot for current BCD settings:
I then deleted entry for XP using EasyBCD and re-entered it and changed the path to drive haing XP. Also in "Change Settings" tab i changed drive for XP.
After that on booting with XP i was prompted to enter XP cd and run repair. Error was shown with ntldr .
"boot" folder is located in 'C' drive having Win 7 installed in it and ntldr is also in same drive but not in drive having XP.
