  1. Hi guys,

    A friend managed to convince me to install Vista (once again lol). My computer has 2 partitions (One for me, and one for my mom), so I formatted my own (the master) partition and installed Vista.
    Everything went nice, fast etc.

    But now I can't boot her XP installation. The "Select your operating system" (or something like that :eek:) does not show up.

    What can I do? I can't format her partition (she has very important programs that I can't delete), and I need to access both installations :(

    Thx :wave:
