Hi all,guess I'm in trouble again.I have been dual booting for about 6 months now with no problems.I installed XP first and then Windows7.When I boot the computer it goes to Windows7.It gives me the option on the screen to choose other operating system which I do.All of a sudden I can't get into XP,it just stays a black screen.So I booted back to 7 and checked the boot menu and only Windows7 is listed,don't know why,it was working fine till now.Is there anyplace on the computer where I can get my original boot menu back.Thanx,Tony.
