Windows 7: Dual boot issue

10 Dec 2009   #31

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)


I nLited my mobo's driver into the XP install CD and it didn't returned an error anymore!
Before I continue to install XP, I still have one question: is it necessary that I also integrate the graphics driver, or can it be installed afterwards?

Thanks for troubleshooting!

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

I already used the program a while ago, so it wasn't a strange thing for me.

Thanks for pointing me to the mobo!

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)


I successfully installed XP along Win7, but now a question rose.
As you can see in my system specs I have 2 graphics cards. When I boot into Win7 or XP, the on-board card (Intel) is being used (which is normal). But as soon as I boot into XP, the next time I boot Win7 the other card (Nvidia) is being used as primary startup card (until I shut down in on-board modus).
Can you explain this? Or can you tell me how to set the on-board as the default startup, even after a boot into XP?
