I did not want to post this in XP as is seems there are few people working in there.
I have a fav. old XP image and a faster Win 7 image on an older machine.
The two systems are on different drives. The dual boot works just fine when I install Win7 after XP (as it should)......but I lose the dual boot if I reinstall my image of XP ( I know you are saying, yeah, duh.)
Anyhow, I have the dual boot program GAG running off a floppy and this works fine, except when I reimage again. Right now I am experimenting with newly created images of XP and Win 7 to see if a new image can be made that will allow the GAG to work. Otherwise it does not recognize there are multiple systems if I install the XP image made before the GAG.

Am I wasting my time?
Is there anyway to have a dual boot work after reinstalling one of the images with the xp system?
Thanks.

Don't you have an option to select boot drive by pressing a certain key? On mine it's [F10]
It'll ask me which device to boot from. It's also possible to edit the Boot.ini (I think that's the name) and add a second entry there.
Just make sure that you remove the WIn-7 drive when installing XP.
Maybe I misunderstood your question.
