Dual boot Windows 7 x64 & XP 32 bit

Hello, I have searched for how to do this when installing the OS but cant find info on what to do when they are already installed. Drives are formatted NTSC. At the moment I just change boot drive in BIOS/CMOS to choose OS.

Thanks

  1. Hello Shag00;

    EasyBCD should let you create a OS bootloader that gives you a single screen choice of which OS you want to load.

    From your Win7 disk, download and install EasyBCD.
    In EasyBCD you would add a New Entry & choose the Windows Tab.
    From there you would choose the NT/2K/XP type and choose a name for boot menu choice
    Check Automatically Detect Correct Drive and you should be able to use the Add Entry button.
  3. I've never tried dual booting until a couple of days ago, after I found an easy step by step guide.
    It really is very simple.
