Recover XP after Vista Installation - Accidently formatted system drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Previously my PC have 2 XP OS installed.
    C/> XP [this is system partion]
    E/> XP

    while installting Vista I selected to format C:> drive for installing vista in C drive (since i need only xp running in E drive).

    after installing vista boot selection is not showing up. i think its problem bcoz i formatted C drive which contains system files. i tried repair XP but still os selection is missing.

    ANYWAY TO RECOVER XP IN E DRIVE

    Thanks In advance

  • If you still have your XP on E but you were unable to boot it:

    From Windows XP or Windows Vista:
    Right click on My Computer icon > Properties >  Advanced > Startup and Recovery > System Startup > Check: Time to display list of Operating Systems and Click Ok.

    This will enable you to show OS choice menu

    Good luck
