Undoing WIndows 7 boot on XP system after trial? Tags: Configuration Windows 7 Boot Windows XP Last response: August 19, 2011 3:47 PM in Windows 7 Share rcgldr August 19, 2011 10:14:02 AM I'm considering doing a free trial of Windows 7 on a system that currently dual boots XP 32 bit and XP 64 bit. I know that adding Windows 7 will add or replace NTLDR (and BOOT.INI?). My C partition is free of any other software other than just the boot files, is there a way to back this up before installing Windows 7 to make undoing this easier? If not, if I boot from XP cd-rom and go into recover mode, will fixboot (and fixmbr if needed) restore the boot process to XP style or will I need to do more?
