Hello. I am hoping someone can help me as I have a very slow dial up system and it would take me all year to read through the forum.
I have just purchased DualBootPRO 1.1. I have a laptop which runs two different versions of Windows XP and wanted an easy way to change the boot priority without having to search for hidden files and make modifications to them. The sales page said that this was compatible with XP but when I run it on my computer I get several problems.
First of all I get a message saying that my bcd registry needs to be backed up and I am sent to a screen asking for a backup path. When I enter a file path I get the message 'DualBootPro was unable to save the file xxx.bcd to the specified location.... Would you like to open the error reporting screen? When I hit yes nothing happens.
When I go into file and scan the BCD registry I get a reply saying there are zero OS installed in my system - but there are two.
When I run the diagnostics I get a message saying that any suspect entries will show up in the Manage OS Entries screen and I am redirected there but nothing shows up.
I am beginning to think that this will not work with XP systems after all and is expecting to find Vista or Win7 present.
I am very new to this and so sorry if I am asking a very silly and obvious question but at the moment I am regretting my purchase as it does not seem to do what it says. I would have expected it to detect my two operating systems on startup. I would appreciate any help or advice to get this working or to get a refund if it will not work.
