My System Specs

Default

Uhh.. I'm not that good at giving instructions, but I'll give it a shot.

1. Put your Vista install disc into your CD drive and boot into the installer.
2. When your inside the installer, there should be something like repair your computer or something at the bottom left of the installer.
3. When in the repair your computer section, there should be an option to fix startup files.
4. Restart your computer. (You'll boot into vista)
5. Get EasyBCD. (Download EasyBCD 1.7.2 - NeoSmart Technologies)
6. Add an entry for XP, follow the instructions in the app.
7. Restart and now you should be able to choose to boot into either XP or vista.
