I was using Windows XP SP2 Pro but when I got Vista CD, I installed it. But Vista is too slow for me and I hate to choose between XP and Vista in the beginning. My current boot loader is changed to Windows Boot Loader which is installed by Vista.
I tried the bootcfg /rebuild command from XP recovery console but no use...
How can I remove Vista and get back to my previous setup?
XP is on C: and Vista is on E:
You could try modifying your boot.ini file to load XP after 1s, and just leave Vista alone. That way it will be there if you ever need it to play a game or something.
Actually, there are a few commands from the XP CD. FixMBR and 2 more other. Just type help at the prompt. You'll find them easily.
boot.ini will not work. I have made a copy of this file before installing Vista but even when I restored to C:, it won't work.
Let me try the fixmbr option...
fixboot solved the issue.
well if you have two operating systems on two diffrent HDD's or diffrent partions.
You should be able to choose which OS you want before WINDOWS loads. By hitting the F8 Key just after power on and should gice you a list of options. As long as your boot.ini file is intact the options should be directed by your boot.ini file and NTloader.exe on each Partion.
Hope I helped
When i took linux off my comp that had dual-boot, i popped in my XP disc , and went into the recovery console and typed... uh.. what was it. something like.. fixmbr or fixboot, and it worked fine after that.
