Problem in dual booting Vista and window 7
Hi, I am completely newbie when it comes to
computers so I would really appreciate your help.
my problem seems to be different from anyone elses.
When I install my window 7 in another partition, it
installs just fine. but one I boot to window 7 and finish
setting up the username and the password then when
the computer reboots, there is nothing.
After the screen to choose where to boot from, if I choose my hard
drive, only a black screen with flashing _ is present and will not progress at all from there. So to use my computer again I had to reinstall window 7 and boot to Vista when choosing one of two OS and then, it works just fine.
got any idea why this is happening and/or how to solve this?
your help would be greatly appreciated.

This is still not understandable. You say that you are able to choose from the Dual Boot Menu, but then after setting up Windows 7, it doesn't give another dual boot menu. It is not supposed to show a dual boot menu twice.
Is Windows 7 not starting up? If not, check for a t.v. or graphics card setting that is outputting to a t.v. or projector, or somewhere other than your monitor. This often happens when the driver is loaded for another video/t.v. card which is set to output to another source.
Next mark Windows 7 active in Disk Managment, Boot into Windows 7 DVD Repair console given on second screen. See if it finds an installation to repair; then click through to Startup Repair to run repeatedly until it starts up.
If this fails to correct the dual boot, Try installing EasyBCD 2.0 beta after doing the quick registration to use beta. Add the missing OS in Add/Remove tab by name, type and drive letter. Post back a screenshot of the EasyBCD listings page if this does not fix the dual boot.
