Dual boot problem
I've installed XP on my laptop with preinstalled Vista. I used
EasyBCD1.7 to add an entry to VistaBCD, and it gives me the option to
choose XP at boot time, but, if I choose that option, I still end up
booting to Vista. If I go into disc management and set the XP
partition to active, however, I boot straight into XP, so it's not as
though theres a problem with XP booting.

Structure of disc, as seen from Vista

EISA recovery partition - C: Vista - D: XP - extend partion (the first
3 are primary partitions)

The contents of the bcd:

Windows Boot Manager
--------------------
identifier {bootmgr}
device partition=C:
description Windows Boot Manager
locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {current}
resumeobject {1107d851-7158-11db-8f96-000ae4f8e160}
displayorder {current}
{80b8c49e-6a93-11dc-bc9e-0016d35dcc79}
toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
timeout 3

Windows Boot Loader
-------------------
identifier {current}
device partition=C:
path \Windows\system32\winload.exe
description Microsoft Windows Vista
locale en-US
inherit {bootloadersettings}
recoverysequence {572bcd55-ffa7-11d9-aae0-0007e994107d}
recoveryenabled Yes
osdevice partition=C:
systemroot \Windows
resumeobject {1107d851-7158-11db-8f96-000ae4f8e160}
nx OptIn

Windows Legacy OS Loader
------------------------
identifier {80b8c49e-6a93-11dc-bc9e-0016d35dcc79}
device partition=D:
path \ntldr
description Windows XP

Any clues as to why this might not boot to XP?

Thanks

RE: Dual boot problem
We typically recommend that you install XP first and then Vista, the boot
code for Vista is backwards compat, the bootcode in XP is not.
