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




    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.
