Cannot dual boot between Vista and XP RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I have a system with 3 partitions. Two are XP, and I installed Vista on the 3rd. Now, when I boot Vista, I come to the boot loader screen and there's a selection for boot to an earlier copy of Windows. When I do this, I get this message:

     

    ----------

     

    File: \ntldr

     

    0xc0000225

     

    Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

     

    ----------

     

    Putting NTLDR in a root partition in a simple copy and paste. However, with Vista, I don't see the option to show hidden files like in XP under FOLDER OPTIONS/VIEW.

     

    Vista boots fine. However, I still need to access XP and cannot seem to do this as long as Vista is on this system.

     

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
