I've been dual-booting for about two months now on two seperate HDs. One HD is XP Pro SP3 - it was my first one - and then I added another HD and installed Win 7 on that. Recently, my 7 was crashing in a BSOD hard when I was playing a video game. I posted the minidump files online, and was told that it was two issues: my video drivers, and hardware. Well, I un/re-installed the video drivers, and did the most dreaded thing imaginable: flashed my BIOS. The positive is, the new BIOS fixed all my "yellow warning signs" in 7's Device Manager, and everything is running fine, and it didn't even flinch. However, the BIOS flash totally borked my XP drive. I tried to fix it by both Repairing XP on top (that didn't work), and again, using the XP disc, hitting R, going to the Command line, and typing FIXBOOT. Well, that seems to have REALLY screwed things up. Now, when I reboot or boot up, instead of getting the "Which OS do you want: Older version of windows Windows 7" instead I get "Bad boot record, please insert disc and hit enter." Now the weird thing is, if I put in the Win 7 disc, hit a hard restart, it reboots and comes up with the "hit any key to launch from CD or DVD..."; but I DON'T; instead, I just leave it, after that, guess what? It comes to the proper dual-boot "Which OS do you want" page. I then choose Windows 7, and it boots totally fine. So. How can I fix this? I am open to many suggestions, but it's clear that my XP drive is fried, and since I do have the date from it on an external HD (and also on my 7 drive), I aim to wipe that drive anyway and just use it for storage. So how can I fix my current boot problem, AND eventually get me to only booting up my Win 7 HD? Should I use "EasyBCD" like so many other forums suggest? Essentially, I installed 7 in a dual-boot environment, but now the XP is fried, and Win 7 doesn't want to boot up properly. Please help!
