Hello all hope you can help! I'll try to be concise.

I have a dell desktop (5120) I was running vista/xp dual boot. Xp was gettin old and clunky so clean installed with 7(home prem) for a change. Since decided to go back to vista/ vista as I like the way it runs on the PC.
So it now boots into the new installation of vista (primary) without the dual boot option. Seems to be because the old installation of vista is now a logical partition? I've tidied up the disk(7s system reserved partition was hanging around etc) so it's now just c (new) and d( old).
Is there any way I can dual boot these two ever again?

I also have a laptop vista/vista/xp and a PC 7/vista so I'm always messing, but this is the first time something this has happened to me.

Sorry for the rambling post.

TL/DR: partition gone logical. WWHHYYYY!!
