Windows 7-XP Dual boot problem
#1
I'm working on a Sony laptop, that came with Win. 7, I created a partition for XP, installed it, then tried to setup the dual boot option with Easy BCD, to repair the 7 bootloader.
But can't seem to get it working right, I know the best way to do this to install XP first, which I've done before, & was succesfull.
This laptop belongs to a friend.
Does anybody have a method that has worked for them?
I know the 7 bootloader can be repaired with the original OS installation disk from a cmd prompt, but my friend doesn't have it.
