1: Wipe both drives clean. Install XP first on whichever drive you choose, and then go back and install Vista, which should pick up on the XP install and automatically configure a bootloader menu.
2: Find a Vista bootloader editing program and use it to configure a boot menu to boot XP.
hello, I'm having a real tough time dual booting vista and xp together on separate drives. Ive done it several times on the same drive but need more space. so had to add.
In particular I'm looking for the boot selection screen at start-up would be grand.
I understand why it's not working, drive -0- which is set to boot has no clue drive -1-has a OS on it. anyone know how to solve this?
I have 3 HDD's now.
Vista X64 on drive -0-
drive -1- is empty (will be putting XP on this drive)
drive -2- has over a Tb of games and movies
thank you for any input!
