win xp and win 7 dual boot

  campal 19:46 23 Oct 09

I have win xp installed on my main IDE drive and have just installed win 7 on a sata drive. The problem is that both the drives are ok but i cannot boot win 7. when i go to start, both systems are recognised. when i try to start win 7 all i get is a black screen. When i tried to alter the boot settings in the Bios it will only recognise the xp drive although it recognises both of them when i go into the hard disk part of the Bios

Have you got the SATA drive set to work in IDE mode in BIOS? Otherwise you might need to install drivers when setting up Win 7.

You will have to set it up to dual boot the OS.

I had to do this for xp & vista. And will be doing it when I get w7
