I am back to win 7 but how can get to XP boot listing back now?


I have Win 7 pre-installed on my laptop and I installed xp secondly in a new partition (seen from win7 as S:), succesfully. I rebooted and it only booted to xp. Fine. I installed my programs there.....I ran the easybcd from windows xp, but I did not get any option to add windows xp in the bottom right section. In fact the right bottom section was deactivated. Anyway, I went forward to manage bootloader and wrote MBR. Result: I am back to win 7 but how can get to XP now?

You needed to Add Win7 from EasyBCD version 2.0 or higher.

Since you've started back up Win7, instead Add XP. Accept offered boot files, allow to autocomplete, Save, Restart.

Please post back a screenshot of your full Disk Management drive map using Snipping Tool in Start Menu if there are any probs.

How to get back to listing e-mail messages individually
WLM is gathering all e-mails in a specific topic under one heading. I prefer the old OE system of listing each individually in date order. I can then decide which ones I want to file together. Can I change to this and if so how?
