Hello, I installed Windows 7 on a separate drive from Windows XP. On booting the computer the two operating systems appear but I cannot used the arrow or tab key etc to select the operating system. It defaults to Windows 7 after 30 seconds.

Hi skipper thank you for your response. It is the last screen on the link that's causing me problem. The arrow, tab and tab keys, F8 all do not work. Still trying each time I boot up - pressed all possible keys, but couldn't move from the default. Hope you can help.

u might have a problem with Legacy USB keyboard support (if your keyboard is USB) i had the same issue with my old system.. try to enable it in BIOS. But if its enabled then try to use your keyboard in the PS/2 port with an addapter
