Windows 7: Dual booting Error

06 Apr 2010   #11


Set preferred OS HD to boot first in BIOS setup, after DVD drive.

Then use the key given on first boot screen for Boot Menu to trigger the other OS HD instead. This could be F10, F12, ESC, F8 - it will be revealed on the first bootup screen.

If you cannot find which key, then post back your exact computer or mobo make/model and someone will look it up for you.

Your Disk Management drive map looks correct.
