Okay so here's the deal...my original configuration was as follows:

I had Windows 7 and Ubuntu installed, Windows 7 was installed first and then i installed Ubuntu into program files. Anyways i wanted to install MicroXP also so i could boot into xp if ever needed. Well i went through the install for xp and changed the directory to e:\microxp\ instead of e:\windows\ which is where my windows 7 files were installed.

Anyways now that xp is installed that is all i can boot into...i cant boot into ubuntu or windows 7. I installed Acronis OS Selector and that wont pick up any of my other operating systems except for windows 7.

Well my question is, all the files are still on my hard drive for windows 7, like i said i installed windows xp into a different folder. Well is there anyway to setup windows 7 and ubuntu in acronis os selector? They are all installed on the same partition but now it only boots into xp. Is there some way i can uninstall xp and get back what i had before?!

Please help i can't use my computer at all!!!

Thanks guys!

I found a fix:

If that doesn't work for you use Windows 7 CD and click on "Repair my Computer" and unlike XP, 7 will detect everything and do it for you!
