If I go into XP and look in msconfig, this is what my boot.ini looks like.

Doesn't look right does it? Please help!
Did I not tell you that would happen ?

And I told you how to repair it.
None of these repair attempts are fixing it. There is no valid OS listed. I have ran startup repair 10 times. I have done the fixmbr crap..its not working. How can I manually add Windows 7 to the boot list?

Just wondering - is the Windows 7 all backed up and imaged? Maybe it would be easier to reinstall - I believe dual booting is quite easy on a fresh install.
