It is hard if not impossible to have a manual since every situation is different when trying to use or have a dual boot computer hence the forum type support

We need just a little info, which OS are you currently booting to, a screen capture of the Disk Management screen, and how if at all you are getting into either of the OS's

Oh yeah a copy of the boot.ini file and where it is located
