I'm having a bit of an issue with Windows 7 and XP after dual booting them. I had XP installe,d and then installed 7 on another partition. Everything went fine, except that I can't boot XP: there's no option.
I tried a few things in command prompt such as bcedit /set and most of those commands. It added the option to the menu, but it said that /ntldr was not bootable as it was missing or corrupt.
I also read somewhere that you should try to copy some files like boot.ini to your 7 partition from your XP partition, but that didn't work since I have no access to my XP partition and trying to assign a dirve letter doesn't work: the option is grayed out.
When partitioning, I set the 7 drive letter to E:. I tried to use EasyBCD to change it, but it only showed C: and D:. According to EasyBCD, both 7 and XP are trying to load from C:. Changing XP to D: makes it revert back automatically.
Could anyone shed some light? Thanks.
