    Just as the title says is it possible to get XP loaded on the boot menu cause earlier I tried to install Windows XP on the new partition I created from windows 7 but when I restart the computer , I get the "no operating system found" error while windows 7 is still on the first Partition but I got the error fixed, I just need to know to dual boot properly now.. thanks! :3

    Normally first you had to install xp and then, on other partition 7. But if you instaled first 7 and then xp, you need to repair the boot file...For that you can use EasyBCD .

    U can edit the booting list using easybcd dude....
    Try it....
    It's simple and interesting....

    In stead of showing windows7 on the booting list my laptop says ''enter into deb's world''.....:biggrin:

    surely you dont need any extra softwares ,just right click my computer ,select properties . then advanced system settings/ at the bottom section (startup and recovery) click settings, finally tick the box that says "time to display list of operating systems" and select a time ,I use 4 seconds ,but you may want to select a higher number. click ok ,Apply and your done ,when you reboot you will see the two operating systems (or more ) listed ,use the up/down arrows to select and enter .
