How to fix dual boot if I installed Windows XP after Windows 7 - video tutorial

Hi friends, in today's tutorial we will talk about dual boot Windows XP and Windows 7 if we install two operating systems the same PC to run it you'll have the opportunity to choose which operating system to enter it only if I acted correctly and I kept in mind that you must first install the oldest operating system and then the newer ones. Specifically, if you want to install Windows XP on one partition and then Windows 7 on another partition, you must first install Windows XP on C drive after that, to give restart the PC to boot from a DVD with Windows 7 and complete Windows 7 and choose to install it on the other partition partition D. I decided to make this tutorial because many users do not take account of these issues and make the mistake of installing the first Windows 7 and then Windows XP. That's what I did in the tutorial today. I did wrong on purpose to show how we can fix or what we can do in a situation where I installed Windows 7 first and then Windows XP. Thus we have to start your PC able to choose which operating system to enter, even if we did wrong and we did not follow the order of installation.
What is a Multi Dual Boot or Boot?
Option of having two (dual boot) or more operating systems (multi boot) on the same PC that allows us to start the PC to choose which operating system we want to enter.
Why would we want dual or multi boot?
For the simple reason that your old printer or devices are not supported by Windows 7 probably only Windows XP but however you want to you can use the printer and you can also enjoy the new OS and Windows 7 .
What is the correct overtone install operating systems in case of dual or multi boot?
First install Windows XP, and Windows Vista and then Windows 7. The first system you install must be at a higher age. For example: If you install Windows XP in dual boot with Windows 7 or Windows Vista, you must first install Windows XP on the C partition and then install Vista or 7 on partition D.
Why should you do this?
For Windows XP operating system is an old system and boot loader can not recognize the Windows Vista or 7 will be able to recognize the boot loader operating systems older than him. Boot loader is the file that is read from the MBR PC startup entry to start the operating system.
In conclusion, If you have done wrong and have installed Windows 7 first and then XP and will not appear on PC startup option to choose which operating system to enter, I invite you to watch the tutorial to see how repair this problem!

  1. Uncle Adi ... the idea is simple and I wrote and I was taken to the banter of course ... if you want more operating systems on the same computer do not use dual boot! Disconnect the hard place ... sites that you want to install an OS, install and enjoy ... enjoy the best

      Seriously? and if I have only one hard drive, as many have because they can't afford a second one… what should I do? Don't use dual boot just because you advise them "it's not good" ???
      People have the power and freedom to decide. Actually these people find it addressed this tutorial, with a single HDD and they will be free to use XP for that printer bunelu not go than on XP, but will also use Windows 7 but it happened that there they remained for a century of 2 HDD than extra hardware that supports Windows 7 pretty good.
      Microsoft itself designed XP, Vista and 7 so that they support dual boot, can be used with other operating systems (not to mention Linux) I have not seen anything written officially from Microsoft in which to say in red and many exclamation marks such as "DO NOT USE DUAL BOOT THAN SYSTEMS INSTALLED ON DIFFERENT HARDS"

  4. Please help me in a problem that has nothing to do with the subject. I did not find anywhere an explanation to help me. IE, Mozilla and Opera open google and that's it. It doesn't load any site for me. Error loading page .I have the net from romtelecom. The operating name is XP-sp2 just installed. It went a few days after which it doesn't want anymore. I didn't even finish installing everything. I mention that I have the same problem on a laptop with win7 trial which it has worked flawlessly for about 6 months now. I still have a computer with wuin 7 that connected to the same network works without problems. I have a total of 3 systems that use them in turn at the same connection. So the network is fine. The laptop and the computer that I only use them as I have been trained by videotutorial .ro for almost 3 years. I do not use dubious sites or games. The xp system that does not work is for children but I did not use it because this problem appeared and I didn't finish it. I use the avast that he can't either update. I also disabled the firewall without any results. If anyone can help me… Thank you!

      Usually some viruses attack the host Fiser found in C: \ Windows \ system32 \ drivers \ etc. Add there update servers for antivirus and other sites like it can not be accessed. Do what we showed in THIS tutorial.

  5. Good tutorial and useful but to be even better against one where you look like you do if you have to boot Windows XP sites, and a 7 Ubuntu. More precisely the order in which you need to install the three operating systems. I suspect that Windows XP must be installed first, Windows and Ubuntu 7 second last (as he sees the other two already installed).
    Thank you

  6. Very good tutorial, congratulations! I suggest you make (of course if you want and have time) a tutorial in which the scenario is the "dual boot" repair if we have Windows XP installed on the first partition and Windows Vista / 7 on the second partition. Thank you ! … And congratulations once again!

  7. Having explained so wellIn this tutorial, dual boot two operating systems Microsoft I have two questions:

    - in what order can be done dual boot between two operating systems, one Microsoft and the other Linux, such as: XP and Linux, Win 7 and Linux and possibly other details for these situations;

    - for the present situation, in which we have dual boot with 2 Microsoft operating systems, THERE IS SOMEWHERE an application like Teamviewer or LogMeIn that can run as a service BUT, which offers the possibility to view the multiboot screen to choose remotely ( remotely) in which operating system to boot ?!

    Aseptic please, an answer to those above.

      Good question!
      So: if you want XP and Linux, then Linux XP chicken first if you want vista and linux chicken first then vista linux and linux 7 if you win, win 7 chicken first and then Linux. Whatever you want Windows, put it first and then Linux because Linux is in continuous development so knows the existence XP, Vista and 7. Linux should be placed last for any version of Windows does not want is not designed to recognize Linux (so wanted Uncle Bille), but Linux recognize Windows.
      How about an app that allow you to remotely access that menu where you choose which operating system to start, there

          A brief Google search I found just what we are looking for about cae I would say that's about "halfway" a situation of choice of operating system, from the distance. It is an application that works only on Microsoft operating systems from Win Xp up, even from the same that I have presented you today: NeoSMART Techmologies: iReboot. So it works in dual / multiboot, where there is a Linux distribution!

          But it works only Microsoft operating systems, in choosing your particular application, the operating system to boot, then, upon entering the operating system, you can switch to another operating system without any complications. Several explanations are here.

      In dual boot windows linux boot manager windows will be replaced by GRUB in linux, so by default the first option will be boot linuxul.Chiar later if you want to quit the linux grub will remain and will not be given outside than from the console or from a formatting so it is advisable to have two hard drives that do independent installation and set boot order in the BIOS.

    For ten seconds that you have available to choose one of the 2 operating systems to enter, you can change increase or decrease. You can also change the order they are displayed 2 systems so if you do not select any system in the 10 seconds will automatically boot the system first found in the list.

It was normal to look for your own solution and congratulations to you for finding it. To master it healthily and not to share it with someone that will steal your idea and will make a lot of money with it.

    I am a subscriber to videotutorial.ro. I receive and follow the tutorials you do regularly. Some interest me, some don't. (It's normal, it may interest someone else, don't do tutorials just for me…) But it already becomes annoying that I receive the same thing by mail several times. Does it happen only to me or to all subscribers? If I ask you to stop subscribing, will you ban me? If not how and where do I do this? I want to continue to follow your tutorials (I found many that were of real use to me for which I thank you a lot) but I prefer to look for them myself.

  15. Very good tutorial. But I can boot windows dual boot with Windows 7 98?

    I have answered only on the basis of what you asked / requested. if you had said that you would please and software that could possibly decide what program or boot your PC the next restart without you having to be in front of your PC and choose, I'd definitely be answered : iReboot, but you mentioned another thing.

        You are arrogant, so iReboot mention in the video tutorial, explain what does and what it's all my fault and that you are not able to pay attention or watch a tutorial head-tail. Very cool
        Alternative? Luckily you watched the iReboot tutorial, whether you like it or not, it's also made by me! Even above you yourself stated that "iReboot does the job halfway and does not satisfy you" then what can I tell you? What was to suggest to you if you hurry, draw conclusions too quickly and are not paying attention to a tutorial of a few minutes?

Throughout the hard drive before I formatted and made clean installation, can these remains remained on partition is, the idea is that you did a great job, even looking for tutorial and to my surprise if you read my thoughts and did the tutorial for that is full bridge mine.stiu thanks, I still will thanks for what you do.
    I found the option in the program to remove options from the beginning and go annoying razor.

    Know that I will not cry on your knees to tell me what is the "mysterious" combination found. This is not my goal, I do not lack ideas for new tutorials, I have jdemii, I do not have time how much I would like to do. My goal is to show you something, if you don't have patience, you can't be careful and you can't be able to watch a head-to-tail tutorial from which you always have to learn, even if you or someone else thinks he already knows how to do things about which was talked about in the tutorial, then it is STRICTLY your problem and that of others who do like you. No one will come to your ears to learn or to pity you to explore to be careful or to learn new things. That is not my goal! It's up to you to develop the idea, to be creative with what you are given as an idea as a starting point.

  24. OK
    Now we have a dual-boot system.
    I'm sure that as much as we wanted or needed a dual-boot, as fast or annoying - for some - it will become time to choose the boot between the 2 operating systems, whatever they are.

    Therefore, what is the procedure to give up Win XP, for the situation shown in the video tutorial, when Win 7 was the first OS installed, on partition "C" and, WIn XP on the other partition (created or not for Win XP) and remains only with Win 7, on the "C" partition ?!

  25. if you put forward on a win xp sata hard instaleza meaning it will not run and restart occurs primu error and take the restart and resume. only go if you have Win XP with integrated SATA drivers. here I said those hard sata. if you put win7 before then xp and make that tutorial is ok yes if you put Primada Win XP will not start to ask how I said everything will reboot. and for sata hard restu not ok or you xp sata drivers is ok to put xp first then win7

  26. @ Adrian,

    I followed the tutorial tau.Este instructive for all users known or nu.Si thank you for that.
    I'm also intrigued two things in your tutorial: 1.Nu you explain why all peripherals removed from the unit {printer, camera, USB devices, etc.} which has a user when they install Window XP {o be true Windows 7?}, since myself and others if they left all the peripherals when their often-installed operating system without affecting its somewhat normal functioning of the !
    2. You talked about two partitions, the first, C;, where Windows 7 is installed, and the second, F; {it could be any letter}, as you said, where Windows XP is installed. Now, I have to admit that I am intrigued by the fact that you do not specify whether it is good for both {7 & XP} systems to be installed on two partitions on a single hard disk or is it RECOMMENDED to be installed on two different hard drives {forgive my redundancy} ?!
    I ask this, I think very important, in my own experience but also from the advice they gave me some experienced computer users who recommended me the second option, the one with 2 hard disk drives! Mean a Windows 7 one and Windows XP on another! From experience with two systems on two partitions on the same hard disk drive I got errors often some applications, and at one point I compromised both systems, so that I lost everything , plus I deleted all the files on another harddisk!
    For what reasons did this happen probably only connoisseurs can we spuna.Dar I was not interested in it now, but I have two questions that I stayed after the tutorial carefully enlarged the tine.As perezentat like to think I put the wrong problem, and that your response can, at least I avoid further mistakes when it comes to installation operating sitesteme!
    By the way, you can install Windows XP, Windows 7, and Linux on the same drive having more hardiskuri?, And with what results?

      Answer for question 1:
      It was explained at other tutorials on installing operating systems, you must put peripherals. I decided to shorten tutorials because nobody wants to learn, viewers are ignorant, develops tutorials and have the patience to look, and do not see why we strofoca if you are not interested.
      He wants to go messenger Domle and so, he does not care what goes, what are the causes that have led not displaying text messenger. He wants to know where to give to clicking to see and it says on the mess and that.
      Some motherboards are more sensitive, have a more sensitive chipset, and operating system installation, you risk if you let peripherals connected to receive all kinds of error or have trouble installing the drivers for the device, because when they leave connected during the installation process, Windows checks all components and generalist looking to install some drivers for detected devices most often are those that have or do not work as they should.
      As an example, a friend called me one day and tells me: Adrian, I fail to install Windows and all, hardware is OK, it is verified by bad sites, as RAM .. you can have?
      I go to him and see that he attempt during Windows installation have a USB webcam connected to your PC. I removed the USB camera, I just let the mouse, keyboard and monitor and head-tail installation was without error.
      Removing peripherals is valid no matter what operating system you plan to install, be it Linux, MacOSX, Windows, FreeBSD, etc..

      The answer to the question 2:
      Dual boot can be done on a single and two hard drives. There is no official document of any manufacturer operating systems to be told in black and white it's good or not to install the system next to one another on the same hard disk or hard drives different.
      As long as you presented show and know what to do, that 2 install operating systems side by side on the same hard disk, it affects you, and even if it affects you, the experienced, you will know how to easily solve the problem.
      Error of the mean arise in a dual boot on the same hard disk, were most probably your inattention. How so?
      The software installation is complete an installation wizard that most users do not take it seriously and give the grabitii next, next and finish without even reading what he's soft on them.
      In most wizards, you get to step in has you specify the software installation location (C: \ Program Files \ NumeSoft)
      Now some software have a smart way to run wizard that scans hardware to detect the correct location of the operating system and program files folder or to automatically default location. even if Windows is not on your C program files are on F (for example) because scanning module wizard will know to look for the right place.
      On the other hand, many software do not have this scan mode of the operating system and program files folder but have predetermined from the start that the location path C: \ Program Files \ NumeSoft counting on the fact that all users have Windows on C and Program Files still there.
      Now comes the person in front of your PC, you mean. If you are careful when you install the software, you look nice when you get to set the location of your installation and see if it has detected your location Program Files, if not, you can manually choose the Browse button to the installation location. (But many are forced and blindly give next, next finish, I Agree. Software goes crazy and look like error occurs., Plus we are careful wizard while you get a splendid internet explorer which will looks like a Christmas tree because of your carelessness and mailboxes left checked, the software will warn you that you what not install toolbar for your browser and will change the home page.

      Well considering the mntionate the tutorial about dual boot between Windows and Linux, and between Windows, and Windows, the process is logical and simple. Do you have a 3 HDD partitions. Installed on C: XP on D: Windows 7 and E: Linux.

      No one system is real and the virtual is another virtual system is not recognized by PC boot. What are you doing still on virtual virtual and the real remains on doing real.

If I restart with the stick inserted in usb it starts from the beginning with the installation, if I take it out and boot after hard it gives me this error.

    Until yesterday Make Select HDD F11 key to start tracing., HDD list appears, select what you want and ready.
    Reaching I screwed up on PC keyboard and keyboard not working to get into the BIOS with DEL or F11.
    To do dual boot between the two old SO there any program or need to reinstall Musa?

  35. Anton44 said

    Recommendation:
    Those who want to put 2 OS on one HDD on different partitions to read and do what it says above.
    For those who have different operating systems, no matter how many and which on different HDD, no matter how many, no need to do than to inform you if the motherboard by pressing a button at the beginning of BOOT displays your HDD from PC
    I start the PC, and hammers F11 key until the list appears.
    Select HDD and Windows starts or what is there.
    Simple.
    Dual boot on different HDD can lead to trouble and problems.
    One of HDD Trays for normal user home is a real bad problem.

      Insert the HDD you are having problems with into another drive or laptop and see if the same happens, maybe you can at least reformat it or redistribute it by inserting the HDD with problems into another drive or laptop. If you don't have this possibility, we can only "hate you warmly" go with it to the service if it is still under warranty…

  48. Hello sir, I read very carefully what is discussed on the "tutorial", but I did not understand much, in fact I am a novice in PC, at my age (12 years) I'm doing well. What is it about, I have a grandfather computer and I decided to install on it two OS first win.sp3, second win. 7, each with its partition (C and D respectively). both with enough space - 40Gb each. After installing each OS how to proceed with that "ubuntu" (from here I do not know what to do) I simply crash. Does this ubuntu program need to be installed on each partition or how? I expect from you an honest and more detailed answer.
    ps. When I install the drivers for each system separately, after installing ubuntu ……?

    I wish you an excellent day

    Good day gentlemen, I listened very carefully to the presentation of Mr. Adrian
    about installing a second OS in dual boot
    Mr. Adrian presented the installation of OS Win XP after Win. 7, it is a super presentation of grade 10+, but my ambiguity is different, I installed Win.SP3 on a 30G partition (C) and I want to install Win.7 on another 40G partition (D). the rest up to 500G is (F)… after installing win7, when I start my pc it appears to me in which operating system can I enter? Or do I have to install a program to make a difference?
    Thank you and wish you as many TUTORIALS

  51. better put windows 7 on partition c. and on the d partition .. you put the xp .. But the best and the best, is to put an ultimate windows 7 on 64 bits .. to take care of it, and make it a super windows, than to you put 7 thousand windows and they are not configured properly and will give you many errors, precisely because you do not pay much attention to what the administrator of this site explains… And by the way .. I bet you want to put some fuss of pirated windows on the torrent, Better try to get a windows still the original image, then you see what you do with activation, you can buy license online etc etc… there are several methods of activation… I when I miss xp I put my virtual box… Off what beautiful memories with the xp I have .. offf .. what nostalgia embraced me :: :)))): P: P

    • Adrian Gudus said

      Normal that is taken into account. The rule has even been mentioned in many tutorials on Windows in dual boot linux and we have already achieved.
      You do not necessarily need VirtualBox. Do not know where you conclude that you should Musa VirtualBox.

  72. The fact that you made such a tutorial for dummies is good, although, let's be serious, those who want to install dual but are not really dummies. Dummies can't imagine that 2 versions of windows can be installed on a car if they don't really understand what an operating system is. So you had to say beforehand that there is nothing special in installing XP so that the person doesn't have to wait to see what he has done dozens or maybe hundreds of times before and not in the middle of the tutorial. In fact, here are 2 tutorials, one for installing XP that lasts up to min. 18 and only then do you talk about what interests the tutorial. That is, you did a 28-minute tutorial for information that you could do in 4 minutes. Those who use the computer are in a hurry…
    Do you really think there is anyone on this site who first installed 7 and then XP "out of information"? I think you can imagine that everyone who does this is because something doesn't work on 7, the printer or software or grandpa doesn't like 7 and wants XP back, etc. Not the misinformation or the mistake, but the situation is what brought everyone here. It's good that you're doing a tutorial, but it's still working on respect for users because this annoyed me. It happened to me many years ago with another tutorial in Romanian and I just remembered why I prefer those in English.
