Windows 7: Another dual boot question

30 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 RC 7100
Another dual boot question


I have windows 7 on 1 hd and xp on another. I installed them both separately, unplugged 1 and installed, same for the other. How exactly do I use easybcd? Step by step help plz. Do i need to be booted into the xp hd or 7, or does it matter? When I'm in the xp, easybcd doesn't see the windows 7 drive, but it see the xp, when booted into 7.

Why not continue with Windows 7 HD set first to boot in BIOS, then to boot XP select it from the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key? Is this not practical?

If not then install EasyBCD to Windows 7, add XP on Add OS tab. Accept boot files, autocompletes, save, reboot.
