Hi, I followed the article on http://apcmag.com/how_to_dual_boot_vist ... htm?page=4
but I have one exception. The system in question is a 1TB Caviar Green, with an AMD 4000+ X2, Asus VM8 MB with 2GB ram. I had the system installed with Vista 1st and the tech assembling it created a split partition ~490 ish per so I could install XP Pro on the other side.
I followed the article, and upon restart instead of "A disk read error occurred â€“ press Ctrl-Alt-Del to continue" I just had error loading OS. I restarted, put the Vista Ultimate DVD in, and ran the repair. 1st try it detected the corrupted bootloader. But upon restarting, same message of error loading OS. I ran the repair from the Vista DVD, and it says it doesn't detect any errors.
I shoulda just had XP pro put in first, but is there anything I can do to recover? This is a brand new config, so I'm not worried about recovering data as there's nothing there except the OS.
Any feedback will be greatly appreciated...
