    I successfully dual booted my laptop with Vista and XP using an article I read (I'll edit this with the link once I find it)... but here's the problem. When the computer starts, it says "Which OS? Vista or XP"... if i select vista it boots it but when i select XP it brings me to a submenu: "Select which XP version" and it has 2 entries of XP (one from previous install, drive doesnt exist, and one thats current.) ... how do I delete this duplicate entry?

    EDIT: Found

    If you'd like to detail how you fixed it then it might be useful for someone else

    Ah yes, CP>System>Advanced>Startup and Recovery Settings. From there just poke and you will find!

    Have used a program called "Vista Boot Pro" to be quite helpful in these situations. Google for it. Good Luck!
