Got Windows 7 1st installed,then install XP on the other hardrive.
Problem is I can't boot 7 after install, then do the bootrec.exe on 7 DVD to fix.
Now I can't boot the XP even I press f8 for boot option and select any HD all it boot/load is Windows7.
Tried the easybcd and still fail.
hi, multi boot xp and 7 is not an strait foward task,
here's a guide to help you do it properly
its straight forward if you do it the way i said--i have xp and windows 7 and ubuntu linux on 3 seperate hard drives-no partitions involved or boot managers
just connect each hard drive individually install the os without the other hard drives connected--then use the motherboard boot menu to select which hard drive to boot from--this way doesnt show the 3 operating systems at boot--i just press f12 and pick which hard drive i want to boot from
also this way if my xp drive got corrupted or mechanically failed it wouldnt affect my 7 or ubuntu drive they would be still bootable
