  1. Hi, So i just recently (today) Bought a 250GB IDE drive for my Computer and i had an 80GB before Running Windows Vista,
    So i put my 250GB as The Master and the 80GB as the slave, i installed everything for the Windows XP Media Center On The 250GB And i realized that its not giving me any options to load From The 80GB.

    I was Wondering what i can Do in order to Get access Back to Windows Vista on my 80GB HDD.

    Thank you Very much for your help

    The 80GB will need to be set as the master since it has Vista on it. Vista's bootloader can detect XP but not vice versa.
