Boot Manager List

Hi,

I have the following problem. I have a laptop which has windows 7 istall on it with 2 partitions. I have decide to also have Windows XP on it so I install XP on the 2nd partition. The problem is that when I boot my Pc it doesn't display me the boot manager list to select which operating system to boot. It's boot WinXP by default.

How can I display the windows boot manager?

  1. Do a repair using your installation DVD to get back Windows 7. Then download EasyBCD and use it to set up a boot menu with Windows 7 and XP on it.
  2. With repair I'm going to loose my data?
    Do I need to backup my data first?
  3. It would seem that they have changed the way it is done.

    You will need to use the recovery console now.
    You can either use the W7 disk or this

    Looks like you found the answer! No - a repair doesn't require you to backup data. It's a relatively safe operation.

    On the other hand, it's wise to have a current backup before doing any action such as this. In fact (as I found out yesterday when my hard drive died) it's advisable to always have a recent backup of your data (and yes, I did have one!).
