Default Re: Two HDs two OS help please...

Unplug the linux drive, boot with the XP disk until reaching the press R for recovery console, and log onto the Windows installation detected. If you see the prompt for password and haven't assigned one simply press enter.

Once at the command prompt there simply type "Fixmbr" and "Fixboot" to see the mbr corrected as well as the boot information rewritten for XP. You should be able to replug the second drive in leaving the XP drive set as the default boot device to see Windows load right up.

From there you can look over the information on adding Linux after Windows XP at

Ubuntu is far easier to work with however.
