Can you boot to XP ?
Can you boot to Win 7 ?

What happened to Win 7 to recover ?
Why is ntldr not in root folder ?

Yes, I can boot to xp and also to Windows 7. I am not certain whether I have the BCD 2.2 set up properly since there are choices available. When the laptop starts I have a boot default Windows 7 on the first booting line and xp on the second line (not default). Considering the windows sequence installation XP first and Windows 7 second is it ok to have the Windows 7 default rather than the xp? I used to have Vista and xp on this laptop set up by the Pro-Star laptop manufacturer with xp default and Vista second boot choice.

You can always change listed order and make one of the entries the default.

There is no standard, fixed or recommended menu order or default entry.
The OS you use most could be first and default.
