Problems booting win XP and win 7 using DualbootPro 1.0
Hello .
I´ve just bought DualbootPro 1.0.
I´ve just upgraded my PC from Vista to win 7 home.
I have resized my C – drive and created at new partition on which I have installed Win XP

Win 7 is on partition C
Win XP is on Partition I ( I was not allowed to create a D – partition because a Sata USB – drive was marked D when I installed win XP .)
After installing win XP - I made ad repair of the boot – section so win 7 could boot again -

Now I installed DualbootPro 1.0 on win 7 and followed the instructions:
Ihave set the win 7 to boot on ( C ) and XP to boot on ( I )
When I restart I get the right boot – menu
I can boot win 7, but I can´t boot win XP –

I have made at repair for win XP - but then win 7 won´t boot …
I have repaired Win 7 and then reinstalled win XP ( take a lot of time !!)
I can´t boot win XP
What shall I do -???
Can I make some changes with system bootloader in DualbootPro ?

Hope someone can help
Regards Morten

I got this answer - and it´s working - If someone can use it ...:-) : :yesnod:

COPY from Jeff Replogle
While you have Win 7 booting, you will need the following files copied to the root of the Win 7 drive from your XP. Boot.ini, ntldr, and ntdetect. You can unhide system files and folders to see them. You may have to change your boot.ini to see the disk and partition that XP on located on.

Below is a guide to do so with Win 7 running.
