I have an Acer laptop (has 1 HDD but with 2 partition-C/D), came with Vista, but was having many problems with it, so I installed XP on partition D, Vista is of course on C.
Well it worked wonderfully!. But I had this nagging to re-install Vista to see if it might work better as I love some of its features.

Well, still have those issues, but now I cannot get back to XP on D, only does C

Can anyone tell me if it is possible to do this? On the Boot Bios, it just reads the 1 HDD, no partitions, and always boots from C

I am not that well-versed in all the computer stuff so please take it easy on me!!!
you can also PM me if that would be better!

Thx for any help

Also, with Vista, when I go to automatically connect the the net, it pics up my wireless connection, connects, but nothing comes on. IE cannot open and no other site does either. I trouble shoot and get this warning box.
I get a warning box that says "Cannot connect to the Primary DNS,"then it gives me an address, which is the ip address of my service, I think!
How can I remedy this problem???? How can I get my connection?

Thx one and all!

I'm closing this topic, seeing as you already have a similar topic HERE.

Please refrain from posting the same topic in different areas of the forum-receiving different advice from different people makes it even more difficult to help you. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
