Currently, I have Win7 64bit installed on the 74g SATA (C:), and XP Pro 32bit installed on the 160g (D:). I've tried changing boot order in bios so that either C: or D: is first boot device.
With this setup, I was able to boot to Win7, but not to XP. I posted more about this in a thread "Dual boot won't go away" or something like that in the Win7 forum.
Today, I was transferring some files from one drive to another, and I got a message that I could not access a folder, and that I would need to get permission from the administrators. I am set up as administrator. When I clicked Try Again, I got a blue screen, and the system tried to reboot, but ended with another blue screen. I've tried booting to the Win7 DVD, but after the Starting Windows screen appears for a few moments, it goes back to the blue screen.
I have Vista Boot Pro installed, and if I have D: set as first boot device, I get a choice of Win7, Ram Drive, or Legacy Windows (I may not be correct here, but if I remember correctly, it's something like that). If I set C: as first boot device, I get missing bootloader - press ctrl alt del to restart.
I experienced this last night, and after running spinright on all drives, I was able to reinstall Win7, update, install Free AVG, and everything seemed to be working fine until this problem.
Update: It seems the only thing I've been able to do is to boot to the XP CD so, I reinstalled XP and this for some reason, allowed me to boot with the Win7 DVD, and repair it.
Any help is greatly appreciated...
