It's possible the ntldr file got damaged.

Easybcd 2.0 will replace it for you.

Remove the existing XP entry.

Add a new entry for XP - and let Easy 2.0 autoconfigure it for you.

If it is working, what the heck.

But your Win 7 entry is missing several lines.

Doing a startup repair may replace them. Just make sure you make note of the XP part that works.

Not necessary, though. The commands take 5 seconds to do.

I am on the Neosmart Forums and have been testing the beta versions of the forthcoming Easybcd version - it will offer a lot more functions.

Arc , you are just confusing the issue by suggesting alternatives.
Hi SIW2,
My intention was not to confuse anybody. I just wanted to help my best. But if it creates a problem, I am earnestly sorry.
