Unable to boot Vista OEM after new HD XP install

Postby vajenn » Sun Jul 11, 2010 7:18 pm

I have a Vista OEM which I tried to install XP on a partition. This was not ideal so now I have a second hard drive, in which I just installed XP. It boots fine, but I cannot get the Vista to boot. I have been in the BIOS and changed the boot options, but I still get the same result. I'd like to ultimately have a menu up there so that I could choose at startup. For now, I'd just settle with getting Vista back so my work is not late. Thanks,

When you installed XP was the Vista harddrive plugged in?
