Hello :bounce: 

I just installed Windows 7 on my PC and since I do not like it at all I wanted to change back to XP. Luckly I kept my XP partition untouched but the problem is that I can't select my XP partition when booting. I gues that the Windows 7 install has overwritten the boot file and I couldn't find a way to fix it.

However, i've done some googling and have come to... Nothing.

So at the moment I am installing XP over de Windows 7 partition, so I will have 2 windows XP partition, which doesn't make any sense.

Does somebody know how to change the boot partition or make my E partition primary again? I gues you can leave the Windows 7 part behind as I'm removing it as we speak, sorry I put this in the wrong section.

Anyway, all help is appreciated.

Go back where you created the partition and delete it, (the partition).

you could give a program called easybcd a go, might help but no guarantees.
