My machine came with Win 7. I connected a secondary drive on IDE and installed Win XP. I set bios to boot to XP, but system boots to Win 7. I can not make it boot to XP.
I have tried with and without jumpers on IDE drive. Someone suggested using maxblast 5, but that did not address the issue.
How do I configure so that I can boot either drive?
There is a way to install windows 7 on your xp drive without losing your files. Then you can make the ide drive the secondary drive. The info is on microsoft's website. But I believe this requires the pro or ultimate version of 7 to use the virtualization program.
Umm, you didn't mention of what M/B you are using here. Which Window 7 are you using? Also which 32/64 bit are you using? Now you mention of XP, Are you using Old XP ? Why doing that when they have the XP mode for setup in the Window 7?
