right here are your chipset drivers for XP (Im assuming its XP 32 bit right?): GA-MA785GM-US2H (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver

download the one i have highlighted, and install it on the XP machine, that should sort ACHI. If not, you may need to keep it in either SATA or IDE mode

remember to get an updated graphics driver too! the one included in Chipset drivers is normally a very old version

yes that is right in regards to the dual boot issue, im sorry i should have warned you about that I forgot.

Follow from step 7 of method 2 here: Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP that will get Win 7 back.

Ubuntu could be a bit more difficult... how was GRUB installed? was it your primary bootloader? (IE did you get the grub menu when you booted or the Windows 7 dual boot menu?)

i have to do this part here? If you get Error loading Operating System after XP restarts:
  • Using your Windows 7 installation disc, boot to the command prompt at startup.
  • Type in these comands below, and press enter after each one.
    • bootrec /FixMbr
    • bootrec /FixBoot
    • bootrec /RebuildBcd
  • Exit the command prompt and restart the computer.
  • At this point, Windows 7 should boot up the same way before trying to install XP.
  • Continue to step 8 below and run EasyBCD from Windows 7 instead.

thank god for that.... ok thats easily fixed, First get your Windows 7 back by going to method 2: step 7 of the tutorial I just posted, then boot into Windows 7.

To get Ubuntu back do the following
Install Easy BCD on Windows 7 (which you will pick up by following the above steps)
Open Easy BCD and click Add New Entry
Click the Linux/BSD Tab
Make the type Grub2
Rename the entry to Ubuntu
Click Add Entry

that should get things back to how they were

Did you get that error message? if not then do this bit:


7. In XP, download and install .Net Framework 2.0 (32-bit) verison or .Net Framework 2.0 (64-bit) version and EasyBCD for your 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86) XP.
NOTE: In XP, Net Framework is required to be installed to run the free program EasyBCD.

8. Run EasyBCD.
NOTE: This is required to repair the Windows 7 boot file and add XP to the Windows Boot Manager list.

9. In EasyBCD, click on Add/Remove Entries (left side). (See screenshot below)

10. In the bottom right section under Add and Entry, type Microsoft Windows XP (name displayed in Windows Boot Manager) for the Name.
NOTE: You can type whatever name you would like to have displayed in the Windows Boot Manager for XP though.
A) If you have a 100mb System Reserved partition with Windows 7, then right click it in Disk Management and give it a drive letter ( S is a good choice). Then select the letter you assigned (ex: S ) in the EasyBCD Drive drop down menu.

OR

B) If you don't have a 100mb System Reserved partition with Windows 7, then select the drive letter (ex: C: ) that Windows 7 is installed on from the Drive drop down menu in EasyBCD.
11. To the right of Type, select Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3 from the drop down menu.
12. Click on the Add Entry button. (See screenshot above)

13. You will now notice that this has added Microsoft Windows XP to the upper right section. Click on the Save button. (See screenshot below)

14. In EasyBCD, click on Manage Bootloader (left side). (See screenshot below)

15. In the upper right section under Bootloader Installer Options, select (dot) Reinstall the Vista Bootloader, then click on the Write MBR button. (See screenshot above)

16. Close EasyBCD.

17. Restart the computer to have the option to boot from XP or Windows 7. (See screenshot below)
