I have installed Win 7 ultimate and after i have installed win xp sp3 in different drive. But now at booting the computer dosent show the operating system choice but instead win xp starts as the default operating system.


When installing different versions of Windows, you must start with the oldest system first.

1. Booting from XP disc, create 2 partitions before installing and install XP to one of them.
2. After XP is complete, install W7 to second partition and after it is complete you will be given the OS System Boot choice at Start Up.
