    Hi ,

    I really need some help. I tried activating Windows 7 using Daz's act*vator, it didn't activate windows 7. I wanted dual-boot. It wouldn't load windows anymore, that includes Windows XP. I uninstalled the loader but Windows XP still won't start up, but Windows 7 does. How do I fix Windows XP?




    Thanks.

    No I haven't, do you think by trying the other modes it'll fix Windows XP? I'll try it right now. Thanks

    and yeah...XP was shown as "Earlier version of windows" on the boot menu before I installed your program.

    hmmmm...I'll give you a bit more info to see if you know what's wrong with it. It's a EEE PC, with partitioned drives of C: (Windows XP), D: (Windows 7), F: (PE, capacity of 4.87 GB), and G: (capacity of 47 MB)
    If I format my C: drive, and reinstall Windows XP, would it fix the problem? I don't really know how the activator works and how to revert or delete what it did. Thanks.

    To not cause issues you should install Windows XP, then Windows 7. I think however you can install XP and then use EasyBCD (beta version) to restore your Windows 7 boot menu.

    you can try put in your XP disc in to repair first. because all your boot /system files
    are in C partition. that's including your W7 bootmgr.
    after repair - boot to winxp to see if it work.
    if it work put in win 7 dvd in and select repair it will fix the boot sequence for both windows.
