Dual Boot -XP (Drive1), Vista(Drive3) - Vista Black Screen issue
 


1. I have 3 drives installed in my computer :

Primary IDE Master - WinXP
Primary IDE Slave - Files
Secondary IDE Master - Vista

To get Vista to work i have to disconnect all cables and place Vista drive
on the Primary IDE Master Cable, disconnecting the others.

i Would like to have it to Boot Vista with all drives connected as above.

I added the following line to my Windows XP Boot.ini
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws Vista" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
/FASTDETECT /USENEWLOADER

Using this line i get a Black Screen and my hard drive light appears on.

Anyone any ideas ?

Thanks



My Boot.ini settings :


[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOW S
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP
Professional" /FASTDETECT /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windo ws Vista" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN
/FASTDETECT /USENEWLOADER

hi friend,

you have to boot from vista cd and choose Repair. the boot process of vista
differs from xp boot process. for example vista can't use boot.ini
