Re: Dual Boot XP and Vista
Did you do an upgrade or new install. Is your install suppose to be a
upgrade, but you installed it to a new partition ? Since RC1, I've done
about 7 or 8 format re-installs and not had any problem getting the option
to dualboot. Seems really odd that you're having it, unless you're just
hitting some kind of off bug
