could anyone help me with this booting problem.
I bought a laptop with Vista preinstalle (rather which installs on first
power on). Foolishly i made some free space from C: drive and
installed XP (into F:) to see if it works. Now by default it boots XP. So I
thought it may be a MBR problem so I installed Linux (xubuntu) in the last
available free space. i thought grub will recognize the partitions..and I
can boot Vista. Now I do get two entries for Vista on the start menu, with
one of them which boots XP and the other entry causes the recovery partition
to be invoked..!
Now I wonder what exactly happened when I installed XP ? Any way to reboot
Vista without reinstallation..?
In Vista I had used EasyBCD to configure the boot loader entries. EasyBCD
gui does not work on XP, but the command line executable on XP
stll shows the entries show that the bcd entries are present. C: (Vista
partition is still the bootable partition).
