Win 7 needs the XP drive because that is where the boot file is located. Is win7 an upgrade version or a full install? Is win 7 installed on a seperate drive or on the XP drive?
win 7 ultimate installed on separate drive it is a clean install. i did find a hotfix for win 7 not reconizing large format drives having to do with 4k blocks but it did not help
