Hey everyone,

I hope you can help me.

When I first built my rig, I partitioned my 1TB Hard drive into 4 partitions. On the first one I installed XP 32-bit, on the second one I installed XP 64-bit, on the third one I installed Windows 7 RC1 64-bit, and the fourth partition was a storage one.

Later, I got a 750GB HD and I deleted the 4th storage partition from the 1TB HD.

Today, I wanted to install RTM since I have a legit key. So, I went ahead and uninstalled the 7 bootloader using EasyBCD. This reverted me to XP 32 and XP 64 prompts when booting. Then, I installed 7 RTM and then the XP entries disappeared.

I would like to add XP 32 and XP 64 to the boot manager. I tried what people have suggested here with no luck. When I choose XP in the boot options, I get an error saying that the boot.ini file is missing and the NTDETECT failed.

I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you,

Where did you install Win 7 RTM, which drive and partition ?

At the link you gave did you follow all the instructions ? What letter did you use for the partition in step 3 ?

I installed Win 7 RTM on the same partition RC was on. I just formatted it before installing RTM. So, it is the 1TB drive and the third partition.

I did follow all the instructions in the link. I used D as the partition since the partition XP is on is displayed as D in Windows 7. I also followed what a user suggested in the "before last" comment with not luck.

Thanks,

P.S: Hard luck for Liverpool today mate!

I fixed the problem using the latest build of EasyBCD 2.0 build 63.

You simply add the XP entry and it will take care of the needed files for you.
