This is an XP system with multiple partitions on the system drive. XP was previously installed and was bootable. Windows 7 was installed on the drive according to goofled instructions regarding how to install W7 for a multiple-boot system. W7 installed correctly on the new partitions. However, there is no multiboot menu at startup; the system goes directly into W7.
Disk management shows that all partitions on the drive are:
XPSystem (Primary partition)
System Reserved (System, Active, Primary)
W7System (Boot, Pagefile, Crash Dump, Primary)
Startup and Recovery under System Properties shows only "Windows 7" as an available O/S.
I do not want to use a non-Microsoft boot loader on this system.
Can this system be brought into the desired dual-boot configuration using the Microsoft boot loader?
