    Hi I installed Windows 7 no probs, but it seems a bit overbearing in that it boots straight to windows 7. Which bypasses my XP 64 install which happens to contain important work. To make matters worse I followed this tut on how to create a boot screen How to Add Vista to Windows 7 Boot Manager However this seems to have made things worse, as when you boot into the other partition a windows 7 screen comes up and says its repairing the files. Which seems worrying so I stop it before it completes the operation.
    Hope someone else has encounted something simmilar!
    Regards fatty

    Dual Boot choice

    Right click my computer, go to advanced setting at the bottom you see startup and recovery
    next page you see Default operating system , make your choice.

    I have XP as my choice!
