I am new to here and I have a problem. please help me.
I bought a new Desktop PC (i-3, with 500GB HD) with Win 7 Ultimate X86 installed in it. The HD partitions I could see from Win 7 are: C with 97 GB (win 7), D (DVD drive), E with 97 GB, F with 146 GB, and G with 117 GB.
Then I installed XP (32 bit) but XP shows the partition like this; C with 100 MB !, D with 146 GB, E with 117 GB, F with 97 GB (Win 7), G with 97 GB (Win XP) and H for DVD.
XP shows one partition of 100 MB more !.
After installing XP, I didn't get boot options so, I again reninstalled XP on same partition. This time I got boot option but win 7 doesn't load.
Then I repaired Win 7 with its DVD. Now Win 7 is Working well but no boot option available. I run EasyBCD from win 7 to fix this problem but it doesn't work.
I added a new entry as win XP OS in the list with EasyBCD as you explained. Then I opened "Advanced System Options - Start up and recovery-Setting". Fine, it is there my XP listed and allowed time 30 seconds but when I restart the system it doesn't ask option for operating system. I noticed that after re-starting the system, there is no Win XP in the OS listing under Advanced System Options - Start up and recovery-Setting".
So, help me to get boot option as well as Win XP in my PC.
