Reinstall XP Without Reinstalling Vista

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Bryan Krossley, Feb 26, 2007.

  1. Ok, I had a dual boot config working great but all the sudden I can not boot into XP anymore. After the bootloader screen if I select XP the system just reboots. Who knows why! Anyway I was wondering is it possible to reinstall XP without having to reinstall Vista? Both of the OS are on different partitions.

    Thanks,

    BK

  2. It depends on how XP will be installed. Worst case would be brand name OEM. Assuming the best case, non-upgrade (full) XP CD and non-upgrade (full) Vista DVD, after XP is installed you'll need to adjust the boot as outlined in installing XP after Vista:

  4. Well, Bryan, here is the link, again:

    Scroll down to Install Windows XP and do like it says. They expect you to know where to get VistaBootPRO:
