no no i think people got me wrong. my bootloader shows both the entries fine.windows 7 and earlier version of windows. my problem was that once i am in win 7 ,when i click my computer the C drive (on which xp was loaded) did not show. the D drive on which win 7 was loaded was shown as C in win 7 .
however , in xp all the drives were showing properly.
i have xp installed, and i downloaded 7 (iso). but i do not have a dvd drive so what are my options? there was a tutorial which explained how to install win 7 without actually burning a dvd, but in this method it replaces my original os (XP). how do i set up dual boot by this method? my xp is running from c drive, n plan to run 7 from my d drive. could u please explain how to modify this tutorial for a dual boot.
i have done the same thing. here is how i did that:
<optional step> format d drive (or drive u want to install to).keep minimum free space to 10 gb <>
install daemon tools (its is a virtual drive application) in xp. right click and load the iso file in d-tools.
the iso will auto play and win 7 will prompt u to "install now". do that and then u will b given the option to select drive. select your drive and you are done!
