    Hello Guys. I have a dual boot system of Windows XP installed on drive C: and Windows 7 installed on drive D: of my machine... the problem started when i re installed my windows xp on drive C: I lost the dual boot screen, now i can only boot on windows xp. How can I restore my dual boot screen so that i can also boot on windows 7. Thank you for any feedback and help.

    We don't allow that link because Microsoft alleges copyright infringement. With the Windows 7 installation DVD or with the Repair disk you can make from the installed Windows 7 you don't need any thing else.
