Vista/XP Pro Dual Booting problem
 
I followed the instructions on the site (except for the partioning part because I have four separate hard drives) and I am getting a File:\ntlr Status:0xc0000e Info: the selected entry could not be loaded when selecting the XP option......

Here is my setup:

I have 4 SATA hard drives installed. Vista was the first OS installed. Hard drive letters are C: F: G: X:

I installed XP on drive X. Everything seemed to install fine and I was able to get into XP during initial install.

Then after a reboot, the system went directly to Vista. I loaded the boot loader program to modify the boot loading screen. Added XP Pro...I tried assigning C: which generates the above error. If I assign X, then the machine just reboots when I select XP in the menu selection screen.

Any ideas?

try using fdisk on a floppy to see how it labells the drives. Vista may see the drives one way, but your bios/boot sector another.

Booting across drives "can" be difficult, when sata drives are used it gets more difficult.

I think your right, something is definitely flakey with my system. If I put in the XP Pro cd during bootup, it boots right into XP. If I take the CD out, then it boots in Vista.
