Windows 7: boot manager

01 Jan 2010   #21


Happy New Year!

Please provide Disk Management and EasyBCD 2.0 screenshots to advise you correctly.

Otherwise there is no telling what needs to be undone before a Dual Boot can be correctly configured.

As you are in XP now, use this tutorial for making the screenshot with Paint:

Full snips of Partition Wizard and EasyBCD 2.0 (uploaded for you earlier) would tell us the most.

You'll need to install Net Framework 2.0 to run Easy in XP.

Well, I do not understand how you are now booting to XP and not Win 7---what happened?? It is easy to add XP to a windows 7 boot menu, but not so easy the other way.

If you changed the active partition, and there can only be one on a drive, you probably made the XP partition the bootable one.

Do you see a bootmgr file or Boot folder in the root directory of the XP partition?

Oh well, have a good new year..

Sorry I haven't done this yet. Snowy conditions have meant that children are at home using PCs, but I'm not.

I'm afraid that I surrendered. It was easier to solve the issues that kept me using XP. (One was a WiFi dongel with no 7 drivers. One was a device that, it turned out, upset the DEP. The main one was all my daughter's SIMS3 stuff ).
So now my daughter is on a fully WIN7 machine. With SIMS3 data restored from a backup.

I'm sorry that I couldn't go down the dual boot route - but at the end of the day, my daughter's machine is for her benefit.

I would suggest you buy BootItNG from TerabyteUnlmited. It is a phenomenal boot and hdd manager. Includes BCD editing utility. It supports a very large number of primary partitions and drives.

I have been using it for more than 8 years and has never let me down. Check it out, you won't regret it.
