i have a problem with duel boot win 7 and xp
i am using windows 7 since three months ago, however my wireless device does not support windows seven and the manufratructres don't care about upgrading it's drivers so i needed either vista or xp to run the device. i decided to duel boot win 7 with xp for i might need to sometimes use that device. i checked on the web for various methods nd i installed XP on a seperate new drive.
after the installation was complete i restarted the system and i had two option to boot with the same name. how ever i choosed frist one and xp booted.
i installed basic drivers and softwares and everything was fine and i was redy to boot to win 7
but wen in the next re start i choosed second option it says some files missing so can't boot.
then i inserted win 7 dvd and re paired it
now when i start my system i won't get any option for booting xp or win 7 but i directly boot into win 7.
Please help me how can i get that option to choose boot between xp and win 7.

Win7 Startup Repair will only recover to Win7, then you need use EasyBCD 2.0 to add XP back to the dual boot.
EasyBCD 2.0 Beta Builds - The NeoSmart Forums
Since it's beta you have to do a quick register with Neosmart, then download, install and use Add/Remove tab to add XP. It will prompt you to add boot files, agree and Add OS, then highlight XP above and Save.
