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?

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.

With repair I'm going to loose my data?
Do I need to backup my data first?

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!).
