Windows 7: 2 operating systems?

Software to do what? Dual Boot?

Can you boot into Win7 now?

What were the results of following the steps I gave you to clean up Win7 to make it run faster?

If we take the time to type out steps for you to follow which have worked for many others, why would you just ignore them?

You currently have installed Win2000 and Win7?

Are they on separate HD's or separate partitions on the same HD?

Which one will boot up when you start the machine?

Try installing EasyBCD 2.02 to the booting OS, then add the other OS on "Add OS Entry" tab by Type, Name and Drive. EasyBCD 2.0.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

If you had responded at all to multiple suggestions given to clean up Win7 to make it run faster, we would be in a better position to help you now troubleshoot install for a ridiculously obsolete OS. Instead you ignore all advice and refuse to answer questions, then when you meet disaster expect us to save you.

You'll need to Repair Win7 so that it will boot so we can see a Disk Management screenshot. To do this, boot into Win7 System Recovery Options on F8 Advanced boot tools, DVD or System Repair Disc - Create

From the Command Line option, make sure Win7 partition or it's 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) are marked Active: Partition - Mark as Active. You can also use free Partition Wizard bootable CD for a graphical picture of partitions to mark 100mb or Win7 Active.

Next run the option for Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots until Win7 starts.

Once Win7 starts maximize the Disk mgmt window, use Snipping Tool in Start menu to take a snip of full Disk Mgmt drive map with listings: Screen Shots
