    Hi, i have 2 partitions

    C AND D.

    On D i have Vista installed
    ON C i have XP installed

    i had vista installed first then i installed XP on the C drive.

    Now when i start my pc XP loads automatically... but i dont want it to, i want it to have an option so i can use Vista. I cannot access Vista at all now, although it is installed..

    i want to uninstall XP now... and just keep vista... as long as it starts to work again. Is there any way i can FIRSTLY Get an option to load VISTA? ill think about uninstalling XP after this is done?

    Thanks for your help in advance

    I think the problem is you installed XP after Vista. Likely going to need to install Vista again.

    yeh, reason i had to do this was that i wasnt able to format that partition and so i had to do this. is there no way i can added a code to boot vista first in the BOOT.INI on XP?

    Vista uses a different boot loader so it's not that simple.
