Re: Dual boot xp and windows 7
Thanks everyone for the replies, by the time I realised there was a reply I had actually solved my dual boot problem, although I reformatted my windows 7 partition which resulted in massive amounts of time sorting out backed up data, installing updates/programs, trying and failing at getting Steam to send the activation email before it expires. So I have yet to get round to finish off sorting out xp to see if my game works, I have now found out it won't play Theme Hospital on a 64 bit system as well, so it looks like this xp dual boot was a good idea after all. The method I ended up using was a program called easy bcd, it was excellent, I just added xp to the boot list, annoyingly I found this out after formatting my windows 7 partition, so I didn't need to format after all, thanks again everyone for taking the time to reply.
