first use Dual boot - Can it do???

Postby Bob Perry » Mon Jan 11, 2010 5:10 pm

I'm running an Acer netbook with XP and Win7 dual boot. Worked fine until XP threw a hissy fit and I had to reinstall. I can now run XP but can't get at the Win 7. They are in separate partitions on the same drive.

Question: Can I install DualBootPro and use it to boot to both systems?? It looks like that is the intent but I'm not sure if it will work with the Operating systems already installed.

If that is what it does I'll purchase.

Bob,

DualBootPRO can do what you need unless the physical boot manager has been corrupted. It is very difficult to say whether or not it will work. The easiest way to get the dual boot option back is to use the Windows 7 DVD. When you get the "Install" screen you need to select the "Repair" screen in the bottom left. Then select startup repair. This will go through and reinstall the physical boot manager. :yesnod:
