Posted 11 August 2017 - 01:52 PM

So I had bought an ssd and was going to install windows 7 on it. I currently already have 2 hdds, one with XP 64bit, and the other with windows 7. I had to take my computer apart to move some things around to make room for the ssd, and to clean it out as well. But in the process of putting it back together, I accidentally crossed the sata cables for the hdds and now my dual boot is broken. I knew something was wrong right away once I got to my desktop on XP because it looked like as if I didn't have a graphics driver installed, and the resolution was screwed up.

The way it is now, if I go into the bios and have my windows 7 hdd boot first, it will load windows 7, but when I try XP, it just restarts. If I do the opposite and have the hdd with XP on it boot first, XP will boot, but windows 7 will say "Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem. Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware."

I've tried setting it to my XP hdd to boot first and used the recovery console to try bootcfg /rebuild, but that didn't fix the issue. Not sure what else to do, and I'm just super frustrated, all I wanted to do was install windows 7 on my ssd. Can anyone help me?

Actually, everything just seems to be screwed up, so I guess I'm going to have to reinstall everything all over again. Hooray me, weekend is screwed now.

Easy BCD  should solve the boot problem.

I tried easybcd, and unless I'm doing something wrong, nothing seemed to happen.

Also, for some reason, on my XP, my audio is screwed up. Sounds aren't playing, audio on YouTube isn't working, and if I try listening to music I have downloaded, it is low and distorted, even after adjusting the settings. I even tried uninstalling the audio driver and reinstalling it, but that didn't fix it either. Not sure what happened, but everything just seemed to go to sh*t.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
 
post-33068-0-86653600-1480692866_thumb.j

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

A desktop...with XP SP2 installed...installation date of 2015.

 

You are missing a large number of critical updates, starting with the contents of SP3.  In addition, there are another 300 or so critical updates which are absent.  No critical updates installed since Oct 2016.

 

To save time and energy, I would do the following (I'm assuming that you have valid licenses for these installs)::

 

1.  Delete all existing Windows installs.

2.  Install XP...then download/install SP3.

3.  Affirm that you can boot into an updated XP install.

4.  Then install Win 7.  The Windows 7 install will override the XP boot files and the system will automatically be properly picked up as a dual-boot.

5.  Install all critical updates pertinent for Win 7.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_XP_Professional_x64_Edition

 

You should already know that x64 edition only had 2 service packs. I guess I should have maybe said it's server 2003, but it's the same thing as far as I'm aware.

 

EDIT: Also, audio is working again. I think it was just the cable connecting to the speaker wasn't in right. It has a jack to go from the headphones into the speaker, and I think the jack wasn't fully seated to the headphone wire. I tried pushing it into the speaker earlier and that did nothing, but it was at the other end that wasn't right I guess.

My error...the x64 did not register on my brain :).

 

Did you read and follow the guidance for using Easy BCD to adjust the boot default and selections?  It doesn't matter if you install it in either O/S but you must have a Win 7 install to use it.

No worries about the mistake. And could you point me to the guide for that easybcd guidance thing? I have it installed on XP and win7, but it doesn't seem like I can do anything with in on XP.When I open it on XP, I get an error -

"The boot configuration data store could not be opened.

The system cannot find the file specified.

Would you like to manually load a BCD registry for EasyBCD to manage? Please note that EasyBCD requires the Windows Vista/7 bootloader, and will not work in XP-only environments."

 

Not sure if that's normal or not. If I say yes to that, it opens up a window to locate a valid BCD store, but I don't know what that means.

See this thread. Hopefully it clears things up. Make a note of post #5.

Edit: you may need to pull the XP drive and do a startup repair on the Windows 7 drive using a Windows 7 install of system repair disk if it does not boot with the XP drive detached. It may take 3 attempts for the startup repair to complete.

EDIT: Disregard what I said earlier. It's sort of working, but more issues. For some reason it changed the first boot to uefi and was going right into Windows 7, but I changed that and now it gave the choice as usual. But when I chose XP, it gave me the same options a second time, although in a different order. I don't know why it's like that as it never was before.

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

Please type below commands into Command Prompt and press Enter key.

Following commands will repair Master Boot Record (MBR), Boot Sector and BCD Store.


Bootrec /FixMbr

Bootrec  /FixBoot

Bootrec  /RebuildBcd

 

 

If above commands don't work launch EasyBCD.

On the left side of EasyBCD, click on the Add New Entry button.

In the top section under Operating Systems, click on the Windows tab.

To the right of Type, select Windows NT/2k/XP/2k3 from the drop down menu.

Be sure to leave the Automatically detect correct drive box checked.

To the right of Name, you can leave the default Microsoft Windows XP as the name to be displayed in the Windows Boot Manager, or you can type whatever name you would like to have instead.

Click on the Add Entry button.

On the left side of EasyBCD, click on the BCD Deployment button, select (dot) the Install the Windows Vista/7 bootloader to the MBR option, and click on the Write MBR button.

Close EasyBCD

Restart the computer to have the option to boot from Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 7.

Well how about that, the easybcd method worked, no problem. I was having another issue, as I was trying to change from IDE mode to AHCI for when I put in the ssd I bought. XP was easy, I just installed the driver from the cd that came with my motherboard, and worked like a charm. But Windows 7 wasn't having it. I followed the guides that said to change 2 things in the registry, but it would always crash when trying to start up. So I'd have to change back to IDE mode, change the registry back, but I guess I was only supposed to change 1 thing in the registry and I was doing 2. But I changed just the 1 thing, msahci from 3 to 0, and it's working now. So maybe now I can finally install Windows 7 on the ssd I bought. Are there any good guides on what I should and shouldn't do with an ssd, or any tips, things like that?
