    Hi i recently installed windows 7 on one partition and windows xp on another partition dual booting them the only problem i seem to be getting is this:

    Bootmgr is missing ctrl +del etc to restart :<

    Im familiar with this being a vista problem but i dont have vista installed the thing is with the windows xp cd in the cd rom drive it boots just fine.

    Anybody can help?

    Much appreciation
    Ben

    Try running the Win 7 repair from the Win 7 disk.

    Thanks for your help i have discovered the problem ran deeper than this and it was merly trouble with the Harddrives being set to primary secondary etc. Any way for the time being going back to xp till i get a new wifi card as netgear is so bad!

    I like Linksys myself. They aren't without some nuances, but they are better than the others.
