    A bit of setup info to help with this
    320GB hard drive:
    249GB-Movies/music
    49GB-Misc Files

    75GB Hard Drive backup

    500GB Hard Driver
    64GB-Vista x64 business
    200GB-Video Games
    149GB- Applications
    53GB- Vista Home premium



    I did all of the partitioning with Windows Disk Management.

    My problem is after Installing Vista Home Premium x32 I no longer have the boot option to boot into the x64 edition. When pressing F8 at startup i get the advanced options but still no booting into the x64 version.

    Previously I had the x32 on a partition in the 320GB hard drive and i was able to choose which OS to boot. I switched them both to the same drive duel to the fact that the 320GB is EIDE whereas the 75GB and the 500GB are both SATA and faster.


    Does anyone know why I no longer have the choice of which OS to boot? And any solutions besides put them back on two seperate hard drives.
