Dual boot problem with EasyBCD XP/Vista

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My computer came with windows Vista with so many vista problems I bought a second harddrive which I installed XP to I did this while disconnecting the Vista drive. in the Bios Vista is the first SATA drive to load.

I then installed EasyBCD to the Vista drive and had it add the an entry for the XP drive I changed the driver letter for the XP drive to F tahtys waht vista shows the winxp to be on i also tried C the bootloader path says \\NTLDR

The problem is when i do I reboot both operating systems are listed but only the Vista one will boot

Should I be installing EasyBCD on the XP drive as well? what else do I need to do to get the XP drive to boot???

you shouldnt have to install it on xp, the vista install should add the requirements for both drives. perhaps try re-adding the entry to the menu using EasyBCD?
