Well greggroker you did it I tried your bootsect /nt52 i: method after a clean install of XP and it worked. Will have to reload some programs and backup data. If your ever in Daytona Beach surfing e-mail me and I'll buy you a beer for this one. Codoos!!!

If you reinstalled it would have done the same thing just by unplugging the other HD's.

Now boot XP via the BIOS boot menu, or add it from Win7 using EasyBCD if you don't like using the special BIOS Boot Key to trigger XP HD each time you want to boot XP.

Greggrocker I was able to process all drives but now I have another problem. When I reloaded a fresh XP onto the partition somehow it took out all my programs in Windows 7 and but not my files. How do I restore my programs such as MS office, HP printer, PDF software back to it's original state? When I look into programs there is only a folder and many of the desktop short cuts are gone.
