Windows 7: Dual Boot screen gone

Dual Boot screen gone

Hello,

I am running Win 7 x86 for a year or so on drive C: , I had win xp which I almost forgot about, since win 7 is so good , on drive D:.

So I decided to get rid of xp and try win 7 x64 on drive D: instead of Xp, so after I formated D: and installed win 7 x64 I have lost the dual boot screen and now I can't go back to win 7 x86!

I assume that the boot information was located on the same hard drive as xp since it is now gone and also since I had xp before I had win 7.

So how do I get the dual boot screen back so I can shift between x86 and x64?

Fixed it with dual boot pro, it has an option to ad an OS (which easyBCD does not).

EasyBCD most definitely has an Add OS function. When installing 7 64 bit didn't auto-configure it, you need to install Easy to add 32 bit back to the boot menu.
