Dual Boot Vista and XP Problem


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the command line to pick up Vista on my primary XP machine.


[boot loader]



[operating systems]

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

I want to know which part I want to change and add to include XP and Vista on my machine.

My primary hard drive have 3 partitions    C:  XP   D :  Vista E: Empty

While I may be wrong, you have to boot from vista. Same as if you had dual hard drives. Vista will not go on drive d. It must be on drive c. MIcrosoft will just not let vista run as a secondary os. Vista can not run on a slave drive. So trying to edit xp boot ini files while makes all the sense in the world, In the microsoft world it just does not work that way.
