My memory is not what it was.
I had to reinstall Vista on my dual boot system.
It has its own partition, so I just formated & reinstalled, that was ok.
Now the boot manager dosent come up.

Here's a tutorial:

Or, you can just download easybcd, add XP entry, and you're good to go;)

Thanks for that.
As soon as I saw the EasyBCD I remembered.
I've got the boot loader back, now I just have to reinstate the NT Loader to get xp to boot.

Just getting back onto this.
When I try to boot to XP I get the "could not locate copy of NTLDR etc"
The tutorial dosent cover this, could someone prompt me in the right direction please.
