Are you asking for help to boot XP or Vista? It sounds like you are asking about XP. You have told us that you have overwritten this partition with Vista.

If so, XP is gone...

Please be clear - I am sure that no on reading this is 100% certain of what your issue is.

This happens every single time I install XP and Vista and overwrite the boot loader with Vista.

The files are shifted onto the Vista partition.

Shift the following files below into the XP partition (e.g. if Vista is on C: and XP on D:, go to C: and find these files (they should be right there) and move them straight to D: and nowhere else):
  • NTLDR
  • BOOT.INI
  • AUTOEXEC.BAT
  • NTDETECT.COM
That will solve your problems.

Tsaliki: Vista was installed on partition 1, overwriting "Microsoft Windows XP Professional (Old)".


How many Windows XP partitions you had? If you installed over the old and only one then it is gone. Note the word "overwtiting" you used there.

What he meant by this:

adamj: Thanks. I have now resolved the issue (Needed to boot the legacy OS from C:, even tho Vista is installed on C:)

I think meant:

"I needed to boot XP from C:, even though Vista is on C:"

... meaning the XP boot files must have been on C:.

As before, I've had this problem numerous times (I format a lot Laughing - it always occurs when using the Vista Startup Repair tool)

Try my instructions from my previous post.

Calm down... as I told you it's in my previous post. If you could just have a moment to slowly read through the instructions, and come back with better remarks.

I think I have been as clear as I can in that post. I even put an example of the drive letters.

Here is a reiteration: copy the files straight to the XP drive - and just at the top directory and nowhere else.
