Dual Boot Problem

Hey Guys,

I just followed the Dual Boot tutorail. I have windows 7 installed first but now I'm at the step where I should install EasyBCD. But for that I have to install a pack for windows. But when I try to install it gives an error. I have Windows XP Ultimate by Johnny. (Don't know if that's the problem). Anybody knows a solution?

Greetings,

What pack for windows?

I don't think many will know what the "Johnny" modification is - specially as that is XP and this is 7 forums.

Do you have a link for it?

I assume it's this ? Looks interesting http://www.winxpu.info/

I checked - it does say you need to use your own purchased key - it appears to be just a mod of the install media?

Seems it includes .net framework all the way up to 3.5, so you won't need it again.

In XP, download and install .Net Framework 2.0 and EasyBCD.
NOTE: In XP, Net Framework is required to be installed to run the free program EasyBCD.

I don't think the link is legal it's piratebay
