No Boot Menu Dual Booting On Separate Hard Drives


I'm trying to dual boot vista and windows 7. I have vista installed on one hard drive and windows 7 installed on a separate hard drive. I can boot both by changing the boot order in the bios but i do not get a boot menu on either os.

Here is what i get using "bcdedit /enum all" on vista:

"Microsoft windows [version 6. 0. 6001]

C:windowssystem32>bcdedit /enum all

Fix Separate System And Boot Hard Drives

I recently purchased and installed a new hd for my system that was running windows 7. I had purchased the windows 7 digital download installer so i have no install/repair cds to work with. My goal is to replace the old hd with the new one such that the new hd serves as both the system and the boot drive and if i want to i can either remove the old hard drive entirely or wipe it and use it for back up storage.

After installing and formatting the new hd i performed a custom installation of windows 7 using my downloaded installer and selected the new drive as the drive to install windows. After the installation completed i checked the disk management and the old drive (c:) is designated as the system drive and the new drive (z:) is the boot drive. As it currently stands if i unplug the old drive (c:) the attempt to turn the system on it tries to boot from the cd (which i don't have) and windows 7 won't start.

Further it appears that both drives now have windows 7 installed and if i have both plugged in, upon startup it asks what software i would like to run "windows 7" or "windows 7, " after a 20 second countdown it starts up normally. This is more of an annoyance than a show stopper because it adds about 20 seconds every time i start the system.

Any ideas on how to fix the issue? I will try reinstalling windows 7. If that doesn't work my next thought is to burn the digital installer to a cd, unplug the old drive and when it prompts to load from cd to try the burned disk.

Xp On Separate Drive To Win 7, Setup Dual Boot

This is my first time on the forum and even though i know a little about computers i could certainly use some advice & assistance here. Presently i have xp pro installed on a 500gb drive(which is partitioned) and i have a 750gb drive that i will be installing windows 7 pro(which again is partitioned)onto. My question is thus: how can i make a dual boot with xp & w7.

These are my specs: drive "c" has xp installed with a partition("d"). Then i have a separate disk with drive "e" which is empty with a partition("f")also empty. Then i have "g" & "h" as my 2 dvd/cd burners. Lastly i have an an external wd my book essential which is drive "j" and the smartware is showing as drive "i". Soin 'my computer' there are drives c, d, e, f, g, h, i &j. I am running a gigabyte ep45t-extreme m/b with 4gb of 1333mhz ddr3 corsairram, performance is by the intel core2duoe8500
Chip(3. 16ghz).

I do not want to have both xp & w7 on the same disk, rather on 2 separate drives. Since i have xp pro already installed as "c" drive how can i make "e"the other os for dual boot. Remember that "e" is on a separate drive. I did have it set up as a dual boot before but my little tacker played his game and things went haywire, so therefor me & all my wisdom decided that i could get it back to normal and yep, you guessed it, i absolutely stuffed it up even more.

Can somebody be so kind and inform me as to how i can make my system a dual-boot once again ?. If you can then i will be eternally grateful. I look forward to hearing from you.

Dual Boot 2 Hard Drives Xp 32-bit With Win 7 64-bit

I would like to set up a dual boot system with windows xp and windows 7. I have 3 hard drives in my system now, one as xp system disc, another for storage and one unallocated that i want to install windows 7 pro(64). I want to leave my xp installation intact for now. I have been trying to research just what i need to do to install windows 7 on that extra drive and i am seeing all kinds of conflicting answers. First, i have all my original operating system disks so i want to purchase an upgrade version of windows 7 pro.

Specifically i want/need to know will i have to install windows xp first on that empty drive before i install windows 7, or can i just insert the xp disc as proof that its an upgrade as i have done with previous windows installations. I would just like to know what i am getting into.

I am asking because i have seen conflicting answers, such as:-i need to buy the full version (lets be honest, the upgrade price is expensive enough) because it won't let me do an upgrade. This just doesn't seem right.

I have to install xp first on that empty drive before i can install the upgrade version. No mention what-so-ever of the windows 7 checking for a previous version of windows even when viewing detail installation instructions regarding installing windows 7 on a separate drive with xp installed first on another. 95% of installation instructions assume you are just doing an upgrade right on top of the old windows xp installation, maybe 4% a dual boot where you are partitioning a single drive and i think my eyes are starting to bleed from reading and sifting through all the tutorials that don't apply to me lol.

Dual Boot Drives Or Hot Swap

I have been using w7 64bit for a few months now and it is awesome, i love it. However my issue is this, i work with video and i have found my expensive editing program and the more expensive io box are both incompatible. The manufacturer has now announced "end of life" on the program and offered a fantastic deal on a new upgrade 80% off. Sounds pretty good, except the necessary io box is only sold at full price $3k.

So i'm thinking, can i use my old xp pro 32 bit drive in a multi-boot set up or is it better to go with a hot swap set up? I would have to leave the external capture and render hd's alone and just change the "c" drive which would only contain windows and the editing program.

Dual Boot - Xp And Win7 Install On New Hard Drive

I would like to set up my dell laptop to dual boot to xp and windows 7. I have found several articles that go into details explaining this procedure and it seems things are complicated due to the fact that there is no way to adjust partitions in xp. I also just had to replace my hard drive so i have to do fresh installs of xp and windows 7 on the new hard drive so my question is this:

Can i just create the separate partitions needed when i install xp then install windows 7 on the partition i created in the xp install? I have never set up a dual boot before so i'm a newb in that respect. I have the xp pro re-installation disc as well as the 7 ultimate install dvd (not upgrade). Any feedback or links to useful information would be appreciated.

Installing Xp On Win 7 As A Dual Boot On A Seperate Hard Drive

So yea just like the heading says, can i do that? I tried doing the bcdedit thing, i got stuck on. "Drive :windowssystem32bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=x:" because im doing it on a separate hard drive and not a partition im kind of stuck, im trying to look for the command for this. The drive im trying to install it on says "new volume (g:)".

See i have a program that doesn't run well on windows 7, the program has a beta version but its not so good. So until the real version comes out i want xp on a separate drive.

Trouble Dual Booting Win7 And Xp

Trying to install win xp onto a notebook that already has win 7 installed. I shrunk the partition holding win 7 and created a primary partition on the other. What i did was cut the hd in half and now have two partitions. The second partition is  a health primary partition and is now drive e:. I restart the notebook and with the xp pro disc in the cd drive i boot from it. All of the installation files and drivers load as usual but when it gets to the next part, i get a blue screen and it goes no farther.

I have run every test chkdsk etc. And the drive is fine. I'm starting to get the idea that you cannot install xp on a computer that is already running 7 no matter what you do. I have a multiboot desktop that i built but i installed xp first and then 7 and it works fine but then this was a computer that never had an os  of any kind on it. If anyone can confirm that i can't install xp on this machine unless i start from scratch and reinstall everything i would appreciate it, if there is a work around please let me know.

Reinstall On Dual Booting Macbook

I installed a recently purchased full version of windows 7 ultimate on my dual booting macbook pro laptop but am unable to install the xp compatibility module. Apparently there is an authenticity issue. The problem may be due to the fact that when i partitioned the disk and installed windows, i inadvertently corrupted the mac os x system. So i reinitialized the disk and installed os x again. Windows 7 apparently installed successfully. But when i downloaded the windows xp compatibility module it failed to install. The message indicates that there is an authenticity issue.

Dual Booting Cannot Find Microsoft Office Suite

I have set up a win 7 dual boot on my laptop which had vista home. The c drive has vista along with all my programs including microsoft office suite 2003 and 2007. When in win 7 i can find and use some programs eg picassa, photofiltre, but i cannot even see the microsoft office suites, they are not listed under all programs on the c drive.

I have tried copying a shortcut to word (in vista) on the win7 desktop folder, but it tells me when i click that i can only use shortcuts on programs that are installed? As i teach seniors computer i need to be able to access the office suites from win7 is there any way this can be achieved?

Dual Boot - Move Boot Image To Second Drive

I have a problem with two different drives both running win7, one 32 the other drive64, on a dual boot system. I want to pull the win32 drive, but it also has my boot information for the win64 drive. When removed it will not boot. I have been working on this for 5-6 weeks. I want to remove the win7/32 and put the boot image of win7/64 on the second drive.

I booted from the win764 install dvd, and went to there pair your computer. The placethat displays the operating systems installed, none will show. I have tried bootsect from the command prompt. It seems to work, but tells me no partition on the second drive. Or on another attribute used, it can not find the path to the drive. I have tried rebuild bcd, fixmbr, etc.

Dual Boot - 1 Xp And 3 Win 7 Boot Choices

I've installed win 7 on my d drive, with win xp still on c, with the idea of having a dual boot system. Due to installation problems, i now show the xp boot choice, and 3 win 7 boot choices, with only the most recent valid. How do i purge the b. Boot.ini doesn't appear to be relevant. Win 7 utility boot rewriter program to re-point boot to ntldr will wipe out all pointers to win 7 for booting, but comes back with an extra win 7 pointer, the next time i load win 7.

Cannot Use Usb Keyboard In Boot Menu

Cannot use usb keyboard in "windows did not shut down properly" boot menu. Sometimes when windows tries to sleep, it cannot properly recover, or wake up. For instance, it goes to sleep, but then does nothing when i move the mouse or press keys. I've installed a hotfix for it and maybe it'll fix the problem, however, when i use the restart button to get out of this situation, a "windows did not shut down properly" menu comes up, with the option of selecting safe mode, etc.

In this menu, i cannot use my keyboard to select any options, i cannot press enter to select the default "start windows normally" option and usually have to wait for the timer to run down. I've only had this problem since switching to a usb keyboard from ps2. Furthermore, there seems to be no power to the keyboard, the caps-lock key doesn't turn a light on when pressed etc so that it seems like the keyboard is non-functional in this menu. I can enter the bios and work the bios with this keyboard indicating the problem may not be hardware.

Os Boot Menu Time Setting

I don't know what this black screen is called , but its the one, where  u can choose which operating system u want to use. For example if u installed windows 7 and windows vista and u open ur computer  it gives u a choice  to choose which windows u wanna use. Basically i installed windows 7 twice and  now i have to choose between windows 7 and windows 7 the first one is the working one, the second one not. But it takes 28 seconds to be chosen automatically. I was wondering if i can either decrease these 28 seconds to 1 second for example or just remove the second windows 7 to make it run with the first one automatically.

Dual Boot - Can't See Win 7 Drive After Removing Other Boot Drive

My mobo (msi p7n diamond 780i sli / 570i sli) has a sata raid controller providing 6 sata interfaces
These are organized thus.

Sata 1 - [partition 1 - windows xp] [partition 2 - windows 7 beta (64bit)]
Sata 2 - ocz vertex - windows 7 home (64bit) retail version
Sata 3 - mirror a
Sata 4 - mirror b
Sata 5 - mirror a
Sata 6 - mirror b

The system was originally running xp on sata 1. I added a partition to sata 1 and installed windows 7 beta some weeks ago. The system dual booted to xp or win 7 beta fine. I then added the ocz vertex drive and installed the win 7 retail version, and i am able to dual boot to all three systems just fine.

However - i really want to do away with the xp and win 7 beta partitions and just run with the ocz drive. However if i disconnect the drive from sata 1 the system will not boot up. Can't find ntldr or bootmgr or something similar. I have changed the boot sequence in the bios to point at just the ocz drive - but it just won't boot from it.

Bios Boot Menu Goes To Starting Windows

I build a pc recently and bought windows 7 off of ebay. It was not opened and still had the plastic wrap around it. It came with a 64 bit and 32 bit home edition. When i installed win7 64 bit os on my pc, for some reason it installed as 32 bit. (I made absolutely sure that the cd read 64 bit and i reformatted 3 times to triple check {2 customs and 1 upgrade}). I talked to microsoft and they are trying to help me determine what the problem is.

My system is 64 bit compatible with:intel core i7-930 2. 8ghz lga 1366 130w quad-core desktop processor corsair dominator 6gb (3 x 2gb) 240-pin ddr3 sdram ddr3 1600 (pc3 12800) desktop memory xfx radeon hd 5770 (juniper xt) hd-577a-znfc video card gigabyte ga-x58a-ud3r atx intel motherboard me and the tech rep also ran windows 7 upgrade tool advisor to double check the my system was 64bit compatible, and the test showed that my system passed. So our next idea was to try the 32 bit disc to check if maybe the labels on the two discs were mixed up. When trying to boot the 32 bit disc, i hit f12 which takes me to the boot menu.

I select cdrom and when it asks for me to press a key to boot i do so. Once i pass this part it proceeds to "starting windows" and takes me to my login screen. I have tried using this disc on my laptop to see if maybe the disc was the problem but my laptop was able to start the setup. When trying to run the disc from my computer i receive the error:"the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

Repair Windows 7 Boot Menu On Uefi

I accidentally deleted the windows 7 boot entry in the windows boot manager. My laptop uses uefi instead of bios. The os is windows 7 64bit home premium. Here what i tried and its results: use startup repair: i tried to use startup repair from a windows 7 installation disk (actually, a usb). However, it said that the recovery options was not compatible. There are many causes as mentioned in causes of incompatibility and i was able to eliminate these:64-bit installation disk: checked windows 7 installer boot to uefi: don't know how to check cpu and os architecture are the same: processor (cpu?) Architecture is amd64, os is windows_nt (don't know if the same or not)
Many suggest to use startup repair but i don't know how to make this work.

Use bootrec following repair windows 8 efi bootloader: three commands finished successfully but i still doesn't see the windows 7 boot entry in the windows boot manager. Use diskpart: open diskpart from the command promt from the windows 7 installation usb. View full post.

Dual Boot

I am currently running windows xp and need to upgrade for school. My computer has a 120 gb harddrive split into two partitions. Can i use the other partition that xp is not on to install and run windows 7? My primary drive is listed as os c: and the other one is listed as data d:. My system is as follows:

Emachine el 1200-01e. I meet all the system requirements except for the ram, which i will be upgrading anyway. Will it be better to buy a new computer if i can't install windows 7 on the other partition or should i perform a clean install? The clean install worries me a bit because i can't be without a computer very long as it is needed for online schooling.

Create A Dual 7/xp Boot

Is there a way to create a dual 7/xp boot? I have a dell xp system with a relative small and relative full hard drive. I'll probably have to upgrade to a new pc with win 7 in the near future. I have a number of programs that have upgrades upon upgrades (mostly downloaded) and i'm seeing a ton of work in my future. So i've seen some virtualization possibilities (e.g. Zinstall xp7) but is there a way to create a dual 7/xp boot by just installing - as a second drive - my existing drive into a win 7 machine. Don't know if it matters but there is a hidden small partition on that drive as well as the main c partition by the way, in case it's not obvious, i'm definitely not a hardware person.

Dual Boot Ghosts

I installed windows 7 on a machine that had been running xp using the custom install. Everything went well with the installation and the system seems to run fine. However, at startup i'm prompted to select an os to boot from (windows 7 or "earlier version of windows") which is annoying at best. If earlier version of windows is selected it can't/won't boot and simply goes back to windows 7. Only a single partition shows up in the disk manager, and i'm pretty sure there isn't any other installations of windows left on the machine. I've tried rebuilding the bcd, but when running bootrec.exe/rebuild bcd it indicates number of os found = 0.

Can anyone suggest a way to stop the system from asking me which os i want to boot to?

Turn Off Dual Boot

I have a created a system using windows 7 64-bit and windows xp professional. My c drive is the win 7 while the d drive is the old windows xp. I am ready to abandon windows xp and go with windows 7 only. My c drive is a sata drive while my d drive is an old pata drive. I wish to disable windows xp and format the d drive.

In disk management, my windows 7 disk is disk 2/drive c: with boot, page file, crash dump and primary partition. My windows xp disk is listed as disk 0/drive d with system, active and primary partition

Since the boot info is on the windows 7, could i just take the d drive out of the system without any problems? Is there a way to tell the boot to ignore the d drive as a drive with an operating system on it before i remove the d drive?

Lost Ability To Dual Boot Into Xp

After formatting my vista drive and installing windows 7, i lost my ability to dual-boot into xp. How do i restore that dual boot option? I was previously running a dual-boot for vista and xp. Yesterday, i formatted my c: drive (vista) and installed windows 7 onto it, and now i can't boot into xp. I now understand that in doing that i erased the old boot loader. How do i modify the boot loader to allow me to boot to xp?

Dual Boot With Xp And Network Printers

Win 7 64 bit dual boot with xp pro & d-link dir -655 cannot find network printers. Have logged into dir-655 and it will not hook up to printers. Does have internet connection. Printers are plugged into router. Amazingly finds an old hp 1220c (12 years old!) Which is connected directly to computer. Have attempted to download drivers to "ghost" drive, does not recognize os.

Purpose of 64 bit is for bim files from autocad and vico. Nvida 9600 installed and drivers are available for it. You folks will chuckle at one problem with multiple monitors, cannot renumber them, thus to use win 7 i reverse positions on desk (not desktop) physically so mouse will move from left to right.

Dual Boot - Mouse Not Working In Xp

Ok, i got windows 7 pro 64 installed and all seems real good with that. I did see the dual boot screen(s) which listed thus:"earlier versions of windows" "windows 7" when i go to xp through this menu, it takes me to another boot screen. It is my original os's with the choices:"windows xp professional" "windows xp professional (tune up back up. )" I 1st go into my main xp and see if all is well. Not! It went through the chkdsk process, and that usually is not a good sign.

When i got back to loading my main xp os, i find that suddenly my mouse does not work. I am not good and using the keyboard to move around in windows. After rebooting i did get to the device manager and it showed that the mouse was working. I tried to restore the tune up back up and it didn't change anything. I am now back in windows 7, and the mouse is ok. It is an usb logitech trackman wheel 2 button mouse, brand new. I have both ps/2and usb inputs on this motherboard.

Important: i did swap usb input locations. Worked fine in windows 7, but nada in xp. Is it a good guess to re-install the mouse drivers in xp? I will be shutting down completely tonight. So in the morning, i just may see it suddenly working. I seen stranger from windows :-). Does anyone have an idea or experienced a similar troubleshoot?

Dual Boot Win7 And Xp On An Ssd

How do i dual boot win7 & xp on an ssd while keeping programs intact? S the title says i'm trying to have a computer that will dual boot win7 ultimate x64 and winxp pro x86 onto a ssd that is 64 gb. Then i would like to have my favorite 2 games installed on the win7 partition but all other programs be installed onto a 600 gb hard drive. I was able to get a selection after reading around. I first installed xp then installed win 7 but windows 7 overtook the c drive for xp so it was all mixed up. I want 2 partitions. But i was wondering is their a way to do this.

Maybe i should install win7 first then xp. I'm so exhausted on this and fed up with it that i'm about to return win7. I used diskpart to shrink the win xp partition b4 i installed win7 then rebooted and installed win7 using it's "custom" selection to install on the other partition but i ended up with the same results. Then i tried formatting the whole 64 gb ssd and then installing winxp pro on the whole drive.

Then i used magic partition to shrink the xp partition to 15gb . Then i made a "primary" 45 gb partition. And them made it active. Then rebooted to finalize that action. Then i installed win7 on the 45 gb partition and went to restart the computer and their was no windows boot mngr. Downloaded easy bcd to see what was up and it only saw one record of a o/s. If you have any ideas i would greatly appreciate it. For i am at a lost on this great idea i had.

Dual Boot With Win7 And Vista

After a week of trying to recover a vista system, which was an upgrade to a previous xp pro install, i installed win 7 ultimate 32 on a separate drive (with the vista drive disconnected). And it is running ok. Subsequently, i was finally able to get the vista ultimate 32 drive working, with the win 7 drive disconnected. So, i now have two different sata drives, that will boot, one to win 7, and one to vista. Because i have a legacy scsi scanner and card that will not work in win 7, i would like to keep the vista system, with all my original files and email archives intact, until i can decide to replace the scanner with newer equipment. I have read the faq's about the pro's and con's of a dual boot system, but still have some questions.

If i continue to use the two separate drives, and use the f8 boot selection function of my asus mb to determine which system i want to run, do i have to worry about either system, overwriting any boot or configuration files on the other system drive. I am assuming that because each system was installed without the other drive enabled during the install, that no system files were impacted.

Each drive boots and the system appears to work well on its own. But, as of now, i have been physically disconnecting the opposite drive than the one i wish to boot to. If i were to leave both drives connected, and used the mb f8 boot option to select the boot drive i want, will i be safe?

Upgrading From Dual Boot - Xp And Beta

I have a dual boot computer with 2 hard drives. I loaded windows 7 beta on one of them and xp on the other. I had a few legal xp disks because my laptop died and so did another computer. I believe i loaded a different copy of xp on each hard drive and then upgraded one of the with the demo version of windows 7 beta.

If i purchase a windows 7 upgrade, can i then load it on the beta7 hard drive and keep my other hard drive with xp? Or would i need to dig out the original xp disk and reload it on the beta 7 and then do the upgrade?

I do not care if i have to do a clean install on the beta 7 drive since i don't have anything important, but i do have important stuff on my xp drive and i do not want to be out of commission while i reload all my applications.
