My vista re install disabled XP
New to all this and seem to have made a boo boo.
Have one of those horrible pre-installed Vista business setups on my laptop.
Did a dump of that to DVD and installed a new drive.
Wanted to have XP as well so installed that first, then did the Vista thing.
Ouch. Those installations give you NO options at ALL and simply WIPE everything on C drive.
OK, reformatted, installed XP on another partition and THEN did Vista once more.
Fine, no XP. Got EasyBCD and created a multi boot? No, it insists a whole lot of files are missing from XP.
How come most of these weren't on D drive and how can I restore those???
Any help will be most appreciated
