Dual booting issues

Thanks for all the tips. Sorry for the late reply. I tried changing the boot drive to E:\ and now when I select XP at boot, it doesn't give an error, but instead just goes black and doesn't do anything from there.

OK, you are booting Win 7 on your C: partition and that is fine.

You show ntldr, boot.ini, and ntdetect files in your C: root directory?

EasyBCD looks fine.

Your boot.ini file should show rdisk(1)partition(2)

For sure it is partition 2 assuming XP in on E: rdisk(1) is probably correct, but if it won't boot, go back to rdisk(0)

You can edit boot.ini using EasyBCD.

Just in case, after you change the boot.ini file, you might try using E: again. Surely some combination will work.
