I have built a new system that has 3 hard drives in it. I installed W7 RTM, Vista Ultimate and XP PRo (all x64). What I did was each time I installed an OS, I disconnected the other drives and installed each OS on a separate drive while the other drives were disconnected. This way, I can use F8 to choose which OS to boot to.
I do this because I have a rack (removable) drive that I use for different OS's in testing.
So, when I choose the OS drive as I add each OS in VistaBoot Pro, all seems fine but when I boot up, I see all 3 OS's listed but only W7 works. The other 2 give me the same messages (didn't write them down but can if it helps) stating I need to put in the OS disc and choose recovery.
I know there's a way to set this up so it works as I have mentioned because I've done this many times before on other systems with no problems. What am I overlooking?
