IIRC you need to add the XP as a boot option within the W7 bootloader (use BCEdit to add this). You then always "Boot" to the W7 drive and choose either XP or W7 to boot into. I think!


You might find it easier to edit the bootloader with a program such as EasyBCD

Yes, EasyBCD is the preferred and easier GUI option....... I for the life of me couldn't think what it was called!
