I just upgraded to Windows 7 from XP. I used to have two different XPs on different HDs (one for everyday and one for Video). So how do I boot from the other XP. The choice I used to get in POST is no longer there. I got this computer from a freind who had it already set up that way.

Thanks-Wavehunter

Use this Easy BCD software to add the other XP to the W7 boot menu.

Once easy bcd is installed in W7, run the program and go to the Add/Remove Entries Section.

In the Add Entry at the bottom, select XP from the drop down menu, In the name space, you can label it anything you want it to show on the bootloader screen at boot, leave the drive letter as is. Hit the Add Entry button.

Close the program and restart, it should now show up on the bootloader screen.
