Problem with XP need to reinstall Vista?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey I have a very simple question that I need answered.
XP is bugging me and has some errors so I am wanting to do a fresh installation of Windows XP. I also have Windows Vista as Dual Boot. Is there any way that I can Reinstall Windows XP without having to reinstall Windows Vista. I just know that everytime I reinstall XP my boot menu is gone and I can no longer access Windows Vista.

After reinstalling XP you could install a 3rd party bootloader such as GRUB

When you install XP and Vista on seperate partitions or HDD'S then you will automatically get presented with a bootloader at every start up presenting you with an OS boot choice.
