Windows 7: No Boot files in Vista

09 Sep 2009   #1

Dual Booting Windows Vista32 bit And Windows 7 Home premium (x64) (build 7600)
No Boot files in Vista

I am dual booting Win7 64 and Vista and using EASYBCD in each operating system. I am able to Boot into either program with no problems. However When I start EasyBCD in Vista I get the Vista1 and Vista2 screenshots. The Vista3 is what My msconfig tab in the Vista operating system looks like.

When In Win7 operating system and use EasyBCD I get the Win7 1 screenshot. My msconfig boot tab in Win7 looks like Win7 2. Let me add that I'm using a product called RollbackRx (ONLY) on the Win 7 operating system, both systems are on seperate harddrives. What do I have to do to get the boot files to be seen in the Vista msconfig boot tab, and the EasyBCD view settings window?

PS....The attachments didn't come out in a 1,2,3,4 order like I tried to make them do.

In addition to the above info. I have been using the iReboot program since i started dual booting. It works when I click on the iReboot icon in the Win7 system tray,(see the first screen shot). But when I right click the iReboot icon in the Vista system tray (see the second screen shot) it doesn't work because it appears that there are not any boot files in the Vista operating system. Remember, I am also using a program called "Rollback RX". I know, I seem to be going from one problem to another. FyrmnJ in philly

Seems to me you have some conflicting programs.
in the 2 above pic. pic 3 and 4 agree and are correct.
pic 1 an2 are crap and not correct.

All I can figure is iReboot and RollbackRx is the problem.

recommend remove iReboot and rollbackrx see if that fixes the problem.

1. if you want to boot into win7 change the default to Win7
2. if you want to boot into Vista change the default to Vista.
