I had a dual boot XP and VISTA onto different HDs. The Vista hdd did crash totally. I had no problem to run XP as I had the choice between XP and Vista at boot time.So I installed a new HD with clean partition, active, ...Now I am ready to reinstall Vista .
I set the vista installation CD in the CD/DVD reader , the BIOS Is changed to access the CD as first choice . When I boot the PC I still receive the selection window XP or Vista ??? I select XP and XP starts ...I select Vista it is refused... In fact I cannot boot from the vista installation CD . I have controlled the boot.ini in XP (there is NO vista installed anymore) and I have the following :
;Warning: Boot.ini is used on Windows XP and earlier operating systems.
;Warning: Use BCDEDIT.exe to modify Windows Vista boot options.
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /NoExecute=OptIn
My question what to do to get rid of the selection XP-Vista and allow the boot using the Vista installation CD? Actually i do not know what to do..
Thanks in advance ...
