My computer has two physical disks:
- Disk 0 (C:) Windows 7
- Disk 1 (D:) Windows XP x64
I've been running a 64-bit version of XP installed on D: for some years but I didn’t realize it was initially booting off C:
Last weekend I decided to see if I could dual-boot the PC with Windows 7 so I formatted the C: Drive using an old XP boot disk and installed Windows 7, which went well but now I can’t boot XP on D:
I installed EasyBCD into Windows 7, created a boot entry for Windows XP x64 on D: and then created the following boot.ini and copied into C:\WINDOWS but when I start up and select the entry for XP I get system messages telling me I’m missing files like the NTLDR. Is there a way I would be able to get this to dual boot now?
